A very Happy New Year to all
Though the latest lens in my kit is the Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro, the much cheaper 50mm f/1.8 still remains my favourite. May be because it is the lightest lens I have ever used!
I have been trying out multiple light sources and working with a light tent off late - this one was clicked using my 100mm macro lens with 2 flashes fired off the camera using a cheap set of PT04 flash transmitter and a pair of receivers. Thanks to Dan from work for lending me his Sunpak flash which was the second flash, the first being my Canon Speedlight 270Ex. The light tent has 4 background sheets - white, grey, red and black. The background sheets were folded in the packaging and getting the crease off them was a real pain. The macro lens is known to pick up the slightest of details and the creases were a big eye-sore! Repeated ironing and a narrow aperture is why you won't notice the creases in the background. I have a few objects in my mind that I want to shoot against the darker backgrounds, but the idea of ironing out the creases scares me.
