Macro on 5d Mark II

Bermaksud menguji coba kemampuan 5d Mark II dipadukan dengan Canon EF 100mm f2.8 Macro saya mencari obyek di kisaran rumah, di kota wisata cibubur. Menurut situs photozone seharusnya paduan ini memiliki tingkat resolusi yang tinggi.

Untuk lokasi saya mencari semak-semak yang berada di dekat dengan air yang tenang (danau dalam hal ini). Umumnya serangga menyukai area seperti ini. Untuk pemotretan ini saya menggunakan tripod & flash. Flash saya pasang langsung di atas kamera untuk mempermudah, akan tetapi agar lebih lembut saya gunakan diffuser.

Untuk mempermudah mendapatkan fokus dan memaksimalkan ketajaman saya gunakan fitur live view. Jadi setelah kamera selesai di posisikan dengan tripod saya zoom 5 sampai 10 kali, lalu focus ring saya putar manual. Saya tidak menggunakan autofocus karena pada pemotretan macro geser sedikit saja sudah out of focus. Jadi focusing manual akan jauh lebih fleksibel.
