I hadn’t attached my macro lens to the camera in a few months so with the sun out it look a trip to the garden. lying on a lose stone patch I endured considerable pain to capture some macro captures of a common weed.

The 100mm Canon Macro lens offers incredible focusing with an aperture of a massive 2.8mm. Controlling the level of Bokeh becomes the challenge.

The lens is particularly sensitive so any movement at all causes it to hunt for an accurate focus point. I thought I would experiment with some differential post production techniques.

Not sure if they work that well, the aim was to draw the attention away from distracting aspects in the bokeh and bring the focus back to the daisy. Anyway, enjoy.
