Weather here has been bleepin' awful for days now - driving rain :mad:

Had to break out the camera, otherwise I'd forget how to use it, it's been so long...

Set-up with the 100mm macro and a tripod, and did some available light photography around the Crimble tree - ISO 100, long exposures.

Used the 'live view' feature on the 5D2 to compose the shot, then used the live-view zoom feature to allow me to see the effects of manual focus on the macro lens - very useful.

Couple of examples:



Will probably have some more plays with this as the live view feature makes using the macro so much easier :cool:
