Hey Folks,
It's been a while. Just wanted to let you know that I'm selling a relatively new MPE65mm and a LAOWA twin flash unit if anyone is interested. I'm working more with video these days and about to switch to Mirrorless, Sony A7 range, so ditching all the Canon gear.

Drop a comment if interested.

Cheers,
Mark.

Feeling on Top of the World!
Shot at 2:1 on a recent walk around an Okinawan garden. STill maybe a tad too early for the Spring explosion of life but there's definitely a buzz of expectant activity in the air.

Look around the Vegetation, but also look INSIDE the vegetation... MPE65mm at f8 1/160th ISO400. Twin XT800 flash from Laowa at 50% with FEC-3. Homemade diffusion. 2.5:1 Macro ratio.

As you have seen I have posted a Blog entry about Macro Diffusion. To all members here, if you have a blog and write about Macro Photography please also feel free to post that to the Discussions category, I'd be stoked if that leads to web traffic for you but please keep it on subject and relevant.

Cheers.

From a shot this morning, testing out the new diffusion, an office trash can!

Getting back into the swing of things. This guy was taking a rest and managed to fire off a series of shots to make up this four image stack. Diffusion is the next main thing to get back into. All good. 3:1 ISO200 at f8 for 1/160th

My first image post in a while. My first outing today with my new MPE65mm. Stoked to be shooting again with this iconic lens. It's overcast and cloudy today here in Okinawa but these are the best times, IMHO, to be out shooting. From a quick walk this morning, a two image stack at 2:1.

Finally stoked to say that my new MPE65mm arrived from Canon today. Also I have recently moved to live on the island of Okinawa where the bugs seem to be out all year. Hoping to start posting soon...

Hey Guys, Mark here, the Admin guy behind the Community. Just wanted to touch base and let you all know that I will soon be back to posting. Been a hectic past year in both my personal and business lives. Alas one cannot live merely at life size though so I'm picking up the crazy glass again. After damaging my trusted MPE65mm I have just ordered a new one and should have that within the coming two weeks. Also am relocating to Okinawa where I'm sure I'll be bug hunting in the dense forests of the North, if the Snakes don't get me... looking forward to reconnecting with you all.
