Shallow depth of field can be beautiful. But the problem with such a focus is that the real focus can be hard to find in the view finder. Magic lantern can assist in finding the focus.
I asked my dentist if I could have some old drills and I got lucky. And this is the beauty with the awful sound. Goosepimps anybody? I also changed the theme for my website to a more graphic one. The first page will look different by the time I have more entries, due to the
I took my panosaurus 2.0 for a first ride after the initial setup and tests. I took the opportunity and decided to shoot a small panorama in the blue hour.

Macros with Retroadapter, ein Album auf Flickr. My ultra macros are getting more and more. Looking back I only can say, that I learned a lot. I learned a lot of the things I already wrote about: use a tripod, move the object and not the camera, shoot tethered and so on.
