A Student's Garden (my 1,500th blog entry!)

During a one-on-one with a student, I had an opportunity to do some photography with their Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro L lens, while they tried their hand with my Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro lens.

As it was a short session, I worked hand-held, taking advantage of the EOS R5 in-body stabilization and excellent autofocus system to make a whole series of super-close shallow depth of field images.

While the afternoon was windy, I managed to make some sharp photos of a white rose bush, including the above, looking up into the fact of a flower, against the sky.

Even through I was hand-holding the camera, I did make some experiments working with the in-camera focus bracketing; only one of these was successful, with two petals of the iris in sharp focus against a velevet-soft out of focus background.
