    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

      Very nice. I'm a Nikon guy, but the 105 f/2.8 macro is far and away my fave lens. Thanks for the inspiration to spend more time with it!

      It reminded me of when I'm hand holding flower shots to do macros just like you did. And yes, my arms got sore too. The droplets are so nice here, <3 it.

      Nicely composed. Backlighting is wonderful, especially for macros.

      Really nice macro shot! Spritzing it with water was a nice touch and really helps the overall image.

      I had already decided that this would be my next lens. You are making me want it even more now. :)

      Just watched your video re TWIT:-)

      I think the sore arms were worth it. Love this shot.
