Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

First Image: Laowa 15mm on EM-1: Coprinopsis sp.

The lens acts as a 30mm with the x2 crop but still has an interesting field of view and lighting is a challenge. This image was at considerably less than the maximum magnification of 2:1 with the crop. I am testing this lens in satges, working towards 1:1.

The image selected has excessive foreground foliage but gives and idea of what the lens can do. Other images were better in this respect but were not quite so sharp on the mushroom or had unbalanced lighting. There was on gun on the L-bracket but articulated inwards to point +/- downwards centrally. Two other guns were freestanding, on either side of , the beams almost parallel to the focal plane.

EM-1, Laowa 15mm at f22*, triple RC TTL flash, camera on the ground.

* No click stops, so setting tends to drift when ring is touched by fingers.

I have cropped a small amount off the right side to remove a vertical, bright green, almost white, stalk.

The body is willing but the mind is weak.
