More for Class











All of these are, again, for my macro class. I normally haven't been able to sign up for the 5d kit so I jumped at the chance to work with it. I used a ring flash for all of them, but a hotlight for the main light. Everything is at 1:1.

for soundslides







The most recent assignment in our multimedia class was to gather audio and images. We has to put them together to make a one minute soundslide telling a story. Angie and I did ours about a winter day at the zoo. We ended up hanging out at the zoo for about three hours. These are a few of the pictures we got. Shot with a D200 with a 55mm lens.

More Macro







All of these were done while at the NC Zoo for another assignment. I wanted to try using only available light for my macro assignments this week, so shooting at the zoo was a perfect time. I did ok for most of the images. But when I went into the monkey exhibit I really struggled to keep from there being blur. I ended up shooting the 1st and last image in there at around 1/15 - 1/20 of a second at f2.8 and f4. No depth of field, but I don't necessarily think that hurt the images. I prefer shallow dof on these. The middle one is for the 'metal' requirement of this week's assignment and is the lower portion of a magnifying glass - the big silver things that you put a quarter in to see in the distance... All images are shot at a 2:1 ratio with a D200, 55mm lens, and lots of available light.
