Amazing detail... I want your camera!
And I as well... :;nin2
You can have the camera, i want the skill.
Thank you soltarianknight
What camera do you have?
These shots were taken with a Canon 50D body, mounted with a MP-E65 lens set to 5:1mag, a bracket mounted 580EXII flash with a soft box provided the light. I don't use that rig much these days since I put together the twin flash 5DMKII with the MP-E65.
Would you recommend this as an all-around camera?
that 5DMKII is a great rig, but gonna hurt the wallet a bit! I have been wanting to do the back to back lenses for a while now but just havent had the time or money to spend on it. You do great work, might I ask what if anything you use to post? Im a fan of LR myself.
The 50D Has been a good camera for me. It was discontinued when the 7D came out. The MP-E65 is a macro only lens and can not be used for anything else. If I were looking to buy a semi pro body now I would go with the 7D.
I LOVE BUGS!!! Those pics are amazing!!! I have a bug collection :3
Yeah, the rig that I now use is costly but I have progressed to the point now that to improve my image quality more, I had to move to the pro gear. My work flow is: 1. iPhoto. 2. Topaz plugins (CS5) I have the bundle. Great programs. 3. Sharpening in CS5 using unsharp mask. 4. Back to Topaz. I have never used LR but know people that love it, and I believe the Topaz plugins will work with it. I am just leaving work, I want to get back to you on the lens bit.
Thank you Mrs. Price Bugs are our friends
... not food!
mmmm chocolate covered grasshopper. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on lenses. As for flow, I have CS5 but just never liked it that much. That may also be due to the fact that I never really properly learned how to use it so anything I do is difficult and time consuming. Where in light room I can make it all happen fairly quickly and mostly easily. I have heard of the Topaz stuff before but have never personally used it so I cant say what will or will not work with what on that.
