I got out wandering around in the open field that makes up part of our property. It is the first time that I had really gotten out specifically to walk around looking for photos with the camera and the 100mm f/2.8 macro since we moved into our house. I captured a few this evening and thought I would share them with the group.

C&C welcomed.

Kerry You have some wonderful things to shoot there in Alabama. I want to suggest because you have just slightly missed focus on all of these that you either manually focus if you have let the camera do it, or suggest the use of a monopod if you are using a slow shutter speed and it is causing the slight blur..... My guess is they are just slighlty off focus..... Please don't let this discourage you in anyway..... You almost have them nailed..... Your exposure is terrific. Not knowing what you had your camera set to.... I would like to suggest kicking up your ISO to 400 in marginal light and 800 in reasonably terrible light and then adjust your fStop to a higher number to close the lens down and give your self more Depth of Field. This way there is slightly more room if focus isn't absolutely dead on and it will also get more clarity to the entire object you are shooting. This will also allow you to juice up your shutter speed to help eliminate the blur effect created with slight movement, either by you or the subject...............​Keep at it !!! :D :D :D Take care.....Alex

Thanks for the comments. I actually was set at ISO 100 and manually focusing. The camera was on my tripod. I believe the blur came from pressing the shutter button itself. I did not have my shutter release cable handy.

My first trip out with the 100mm f/2.8 yielded some very sharp results. I used manual focus, a tripod, shutter release cable and mirror lock. Once the mirror is locked, I watch over the lens for a lull in any breeze that there may be for the perfect moment for an exposure. I usually shot from ISO 200 o 400.

Thanks for all the comments. I am getting better with the 100mm f/2.8. Along with the 50mm f/1.4 and the 70-200mm f/4L, it is one of the three that I have on the camera most of the time lately. I had gotten out of practice, because my wife and I had moved into the house with her parents before our house was ready. I was really not shooting anything for about six months. I have gotten back into it full force lately and I am remembering some of the things that I forgot. :)

All of the comments here by everyone is always helpful.
