Delightful Rob. Are you using natural light for these still lifes?

20 Oct 2014 10:06am

@grouser: Hi David - the proper answer is sometimes. If we have no wind outside, then I prefer to use natural light for the macros, but in this case (and for the mushrooms and closed gooseberries) I use three reading lamps (the ones with flexible arms that clip onto shelves), and daylight globes. I also have a perspex cover to diffuse the light, and use this inside and outside.

I can see why this is a favourite, it is stunning! Did you buy the Tamron?

@kiwisa: Hi Frances - thank you! And no, I was interested in the 16-300mm, but it's only for APS-C cameras. I thought that might have been the one that you use.
