Lens of the week! 100mm Macro!

A new idea I have, insight into what we use for equipment. This is lens #1 the Canon EF 100mm F2.8 USM macro(thats a mouth full). I was always fooling around with adapters to get close up then I had a job that required a macro. It was the best purchase ever. We have used it a fair amount on weddings and Kari and I loves it for flowers. The two images above were taken of Lupin in Maine. They are both at ISO 250, the top one is F4 at 1/320 the bottom one is F9 at 1/50. The one thing to keep in mind is the fact that when you focus that close to something that you will have a very limited depth of field(DOF). You really need to make sure your subject is in focus or close down your aperture for a greater DOF. My next thing to do is try to find other uses for it. Different subjects I guess.
