I tried out loads of different ideas today, including an infra red macro that came out okay but not brilliantly. The problem is that it’s impossible to focus with the Hoya R72 filter on and, with such a tiny DOF, any knock to the camera/tripod when re-attaching the filter shows up. The IR shots were taken with the 50mm macro. The other shots were taken with my new 100mm f2.8 Canon macro lens.
Today is also the first time I’ve shot entirely with RAW rather than JPEG. The conversion was easy and painless in Photoshop CS but along the way, I seem to have lost the EXIF data. Bah!
