January 2016, Week 4: Izak van Heerden – Font of Progress

Train Your Camera Featured Macro Photo

Photo by: Izak van Heerden

Camera: Canon 7D

Focal Length: 100mm

ISO: 400
F/stop: F14
Shutter: 1/320 sec

Izak’s Description: Shot was done with a keyboard and a pencil in a light tent. Shutter had to be fast enough to catch the droplet as it was perfectly formed before it fell. The drops formed too quick so I increased the viscosity by adding glycerin. On the Canon 100mm lens I had to make the aperture really small otherwise parts of the pencil would be out of focus.

January 2016, Week 2: DragonFly in Flight by Nigel
Train Your Camera Nigel

Photo by: Nigel

Camera: Canon EOS 40D, EF300mm f/4L IS USM +1.4x Lens

Focal Length: 420mm

ISO: 320
F/stop: F5.6
Shutter: 1/1000 sec

Notes: Nigel managed the very difficult task of catching a dragonfly in flight. His shutter speed of 1/1000 was enough to show a slight blur on the wings, thereby giving the impression of motion. His telescopic 300 mm zoom lens with extender gave him the reach to catch the dragonfly from a distance.
