A Digression by any Other Name…
A slightly belated and vaguely Valentine’s day related post, with a set of macro photographs of prize-aspiring roses.
Apologies for what a somewhat “filler” post – this was shot at the annual rose competition in Barcelona last year. Unfortunately, the photography here is somewhat disrupted following several incidents that conspired to combine equipment, photographer and gravity in a rather unfortunate way.
The photographs were taken using a mix of Canon 5DIII with 100mm f2.8L macro, and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 with 60mm macro lens. In practise, it is almost impossible to tell which camera took which image – which is one of the reasons why we have ultimately moved away from Canon in the last year. The Olympus smaller size and weight makes it an excellent system for these kind of photographs, where it is possible to hold the camera in one hand and the flash in another.
