I was a bit bored, so I thought I’d try something different.
It’s small flowers floating in a jar of water and shot in natural light.
All manual focus.
I’ve not got a macro lens for the Canon, and if these are anything to go by … I might not bother getting one …
All shot with a Sony macro lens on the Canon body, and manual focus
I’ve downloaded a bit of software for my phone called Slingshot (www.brainylantern.com) that enables me to control the Canon 7d through my phone as if tethered to a computer. This gives me full control over the camera without having to be near it, as I can view it all on the screen of my Android device.
It can be pretty handy, especially when used on a 7″ or above tablet for checking focus on small objects as you can enlarge them on a bigger screen.
Anyway, I wanted to test the software, so off I went in to the woods; I don’t have a macro lens yet, so these were shot using an old MD fit manual lens, a MD to MA adapter and a Sony to Canon adapter.
