Macro Photography Using Fast Lenses

It's spring time in the western hemisphere and we are back to nature with Hans Peter Schaub .

Here is another installment in his on going creative nature photography in the forest.  This time we are examining macro photography using very fast focal lengths. On hand for this investigation are some popular normal, portrait and telephoto lengths. Wait a minute... where are the macro lens???

That's the catch. Instead of using standard specialty macro lens, we see how to use the high speed standard lens in a similar application. We examine field depth, lighting, format choices and can compare the results of the different lenses.

So up off the couch and in to the woods with creative nature photography .

A Nice Effect for a Couple Shooting

Hendrick Niermann wants to share a quick technique tip that uses mixes shallow depth of field and panorama stitching..

Sounds weird? Not really. Hendrik first defines the problem: You want shallow depth for the great out of focus background effects, but you want to incorporate a wider frame to bring in more of the surroundings to accompany the subject; in this case a bridal pair.

So what to do? Here's a technique that lets you keep the shallow depth and it's ensuing "Bokeh" across a scene that would otherwise be rendered in greater focal depth. This is not just for wedding photographers you can use this technique for other subjects too. Be sure to tune in.

Questions without Answers

Eric Tcheou lives and works in Brussels. He studied art history and both chemical and mechanical engineering.

In our FotoTV.interview he talks about "The Cicada’s Song”, his first photo book published in 2014. Inspired by a japanese haiku the book is about how we can deal with our impermanent nature and how to deal with the pain one could feel when surrounded with fundamental questions without answers. A sentence which Eric carried with him to make this project is "What does the wind do when it is not blowing?"

Eric’s photo book is like a vanitas: Through repeat reading the viewer is encouraged to meditate on impermanence and to understand the emptiness of appearances.
