The Trip 35 is a zone focusing system, where the focus is determined by 4 different clicks, from about 3 feet away to infinity. Here I wanted to see how it did with a leaf at the closest level. The rest blurs out . . . not too bad.
I have never used Ilford Super XP2 400 film, which is a b&w film developed in C-41, used for color film processing. Not SOOC, but pleasing enough with some post. Although I was out shooting just to use the film up – to see the results – I did make a few photos I liked.
Looks like a cobra, but doesn’t act like a cobra, so it must not be a cobra . . .
I’ve considered deleting this blog . . . but now I don’t think I will.
Macro photography provides an intimate look at the world around us. Personally, I don’t like bugs and such blown up to a million times bigger than they really are – to me, they are far too creepy, and the stuff of nightmares! Rather, I love to see the intricate beauty of leaves and flowers.
This is a redbud leaf, measuring probably no more than 2 inches long. Using a total of 23 exposures, shot at iso 100, f/5.6, 1/4 s, I combined them all together using Zerene. Camera is a Nikon D7000, lens is Tokina 100mm macro. Manual focus all the way through. Background is a piece of drawing paper, and lighting was what was available with the overheads.
