*Every time you go...*

5DMKII + 100mm f/2.8 L, 1/100 at f/2.8, ISO 200

 

I bought my mum some flowers the other day, so I thought I'd take the opportunity today to use my lovely 100mm macro lens and shoot some abstract flower macros. I haven't used my 100mm very much since I've been traveling and shooting everything with my 16-35mm.

 

I spritzed the daisy with water drops hand held against the window that was backlit by the sun. I wanted just the tips of the petals and some water drops in focus. Since I was holding the flower I could get a lot more variation in angles in my shots (i'll put up some of my other shots tomorrow), but focus was really tough and my arms got sore... I know, such a whiner :P
