April 8, 2011


I had the opportunity to play around with a couple of really cool Canon gadgets today, the MP-E 65mm 1-5x Macro and the MT-24EX Twinlight.  It's snowing outside, so I set things up and spent most of the time shooting some of the flower seedlings that we have growing in our basement.  Only a few of these images have been cropped. The images that have been cropped retained either the full height or width.  I have also included a shot of one of the seedings with a dime next to it so that you can get a feel for the size of these plants.  I have also included a setup shot.

Images were created with the following gear:  Canon 5D MK II, Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro, Canon MT-24EX Twinlight, Manfrotto Tripod with Manfrotto micropositioning plate, cable release, and thevestguy.com beanbag to keep things solid.

All images (except the setup shot) were taken at f/16, 1/100 Sec, ISO 200.
