Liquid Sun 2
EXPLORED: August 7, 2011
Those of you who have been a contact of mine or generally do battle with me in various challenge groups over the last few years would already know that I used to proudly arm myself with a Canon PowerShot A590 IS. I'd still have it designated as my backup if I didn't shoot it into oblivion.
One of the things I really liked about it was how it handled macro photography and how considerate it was to flowers in controlled environments.
I did a series of flower macro shots that dealt with water droplets as an added feature. I got a ton of great feedback from the series and I'd been wondering how my D90 could handle the same sort of circumstances with the 18-55mm lens.
So, I took some similar shots to compare.
Not exactly the same weed and I used oh, 3 more light sources when I did the series with my Canon, but I was very pleased with the results considering that while using the same technique, I found that I had to work with far less difficulty to capture the shots this time around.
End result head to head? I don't know.. Both finished products seem to have things going for them.
I will say that even with far less light, the D90 and kit lens really seemed to serve up some dynamic range as far as tones and dealing with the light. I can see the far superior sensor smiling up at me.
What do you think?
