..Not knees, that's for sure. Looking back over the Colour, Light and Form shoot at the weekend I decided to work up this image. Focus here is on the rear of the bee. The intentionally very narrow DoF is granted by using my old Canon FD50 (100mm on my G1) wide open at f/1.8 with the Raynox 250 macro adapter attached. This allowed a fast shutter speed of 1/1600th sec, sufficient to ensure decent sharpness at the focal point despite the high magnification and the fact that the shot was hand-held.
