    Messing with lenses..

    First the macros..

    D. capillaris 'Long Arm'











    I didn't think D. brevifolia went dormant. But they've been like this for months.



    the always underrated D. aliciae





    D. slackii slowly recovering..



    D. madagascariensis





    D. multifida f. extrema



    D. ascendens (Serra de Ponta Grossa, Campo Largo ~ Parana, Brazil) seedlings. Also some wild rotunds coming up in the LFS I used.





    D. graomogolensis seedlings..



    makin' babies..



    New round of pitchers coming up..



    Then I started messing with the f-stop.. nothing turned out after that. These are junk IMO. Yes, more so than the others.







    And tossed the wide angle lens on to snap a quick blurry pic of the workshop.

    So on those macros where you say you messed with the fstop.. Are those like, 100% zooms or something that you cropped, or as is?

    Do you mean 20? There is no f-200... there's an ISO 200 though... Which would make more sense due to the noise in the photos...

    My guess is you took them at f-20 and left ISO to automatic, which would have made the camera push the ISO wayyyyyyy high in order to get a "reasonable" exposure time. You need to put that puppy in full manual, turn ISO to a low setting (preferably 100), turn f-stop to somewhere in the ballpark of f-16, then go for it. Those settings will necessitate a very long exposure time, so you'll NEED a tripod and at least use the timer function if not a remote release.

    But that said...

    Those other pictures are freaking amazing. I'm seriously impressed with your camera's abilities and, more so, your growing talent. Keep it up, you're making huuuge progress and your shots are seriously looking spectacular.

    Brie, I thought there is less noise with the lower ISO. I wouldnt think 200 would cause that much noise.

    EDIT: Just read Kyle's post, think hes spot on with his explanation of what may have happened.

    No, that's certainly not ISO 200. That looks more like ISO 800 or even 1600 if the camera goes that high. o.O

    Upon inspecting EXIF data... are you POSITIVE you used that aperture? EXIF data is showing an aperture of f/5.6. It's also showing an exposure time of 1/316, which is wayyyy too fast. That, like I said, is going to force the camera to take the shot at a really high ISO. If you're lucky, with ISO 100 and an aperture around f/16, you'll need an exposure more like 1/8 or 1/4 of a second. That's why I said a tripod and remote release are good ideas, hahah.

    Like I said, throw that thing in full manual and then experiment.
