Macro photography – Canon EOS 90D and Sigma 105mm f2.8 HSM
More macro photographs with the Canon EOS 90D and the Sigma 105 f2.8 HSM macro lens.
All of these pictures have been taken with one or other of two home made light modifier/softboxes.
It’s taken me a number of ‘shots’ to get a sense of what is happening with the light and made me think about what minor modifications I might make to improve both of the modifiers I have made.
One of them seems to be particularly good for overall illumination whilst the other can leave the reflection of the (modified) flash glaring off the insect – you will be able to notice this effect in some of the images in the picture gallery below. This glare doesn’t happen when the image subject is soft (ie flowers) but does happen where there is a reflective surface (some body parts of some insects).
I have been reviewing the EXIF data of the pictures I have taken to try to understand and identify areas for improvement, so although I think I have made some progress with the macro photography I know there is plenty of room for improvement.
