Pollenating Season by asianrabbit Pollenating Season by asianrabbit
Spring, pollenating season

Give me a break damnit.
Chasing bees are hard . .
Waiting for the clouds to shove away for that sunlight
ISO 200 , at 105mm lucky there's VR, but its still heavy , Slower shutter, smaller aperture, and flashfree photography .



Sentosa Flowers 2007, Singapore

[+]Thanking `gilad for featuring in his journal, here [link]


*another bee shot if you're interested [link]

Interesting but... I don't understand a few things... you said "Slower shutter, smaller aperture, and flashfree photography" do you consider 2/1000 slow shutter? maybe for ballistic photography, but this time, this lens main advantage (VR allows to shoot below the 1/Focal lenght without blurry, so shots taken at 1/60 even at 1/40 will remain steady) is nearly useless... In addition, the shutter speed is too high, for moving subjects is advisable to use fast ones, to avoid blur, but an excessive high speed would freeze everything, anyways is not your fault, since you used aperture priority ^_^

Also, do you consider F3.5 a small aperture? well, is smaller than the maximum allowed by the lens (F2.8, the smallest one for this lens is F32) but I wan´t to believe that you already know that F larger number means smaller aperture and F smaller means larger apertures...

interestingly, are you finding trouble?
1/500 on a 105mm gauging at a distant of less than 10 cm is pretty slow, and to note that the 105VR is a heavy lens, try handholding it for more than 20 mins without letting it down.
How about VR? VR improves handling, but it doesnt slow down your subjects. Get real.
"In addition, the shutter speed is too high, for moving subjects is advisable to use fast ones, to avoid blur"
This sentence you quote has a PROMISING CONTRADICTION you're engagin me with, my intention was to capture a highspeed freeze without the use of speedlights, and try 1/500, its mere impossible to freeze any quick delicate actions of the bees.
I can see your bee shots from your gallery is shot with a even faster speed than I used, at 1/800, you still failed to get tag sharp shots of the bees, that's ashame.

To my opinion on a prime, f/3.5 is indeed small, what I was looking as wide, would be a f1.4-f2, and a stop makes a difference.
But of course, the lowest macro lens in the market has only f/2.5 ratings...
Do also note that I had to push my ISO rating to 200.
I think I do not really need technical any lessons from you. I really do not need this education of yours.
And about your gallery, I dun really like any of them, the landscapes are beautiful, but its just that they're too beautiful, it has nothing to do with your composition neither any technical skills that you've acquired.

Anyways, thanks for dropping by, oh, and I did not ask for advanced critique.

Well, get a fast camera, prob a DSLR, boost some ISO and get a highspeed lens to make sure you're able to freeze the action with a reasonably quick shutter speed. :)

Anyways thanks for dropping by :aww:
