5dm2 + SIGMA50mm F1.4 + "secret"
# Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 10/1 second ===> 10 second
# Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 8/1 ===> ƒ/8
# ISO Speed Ratings = 100

- non crop
- curve increase contrast
- increase saturation

... lost ...

am busy recently with work (exam), family (my Jie Xi getting active and need more time from daddy and mummy, tired (landscape photography make me tired as woke up early in the morning, hiking ... running ....driving far...)

with all the things above nothing much from me recently and just wish to make this blog active while I can still remember I had stop posting for weeks ......

2 things I going to share

1. finally I got Robberflies mating picture .. saw them together for 3-4 times but just fail to capture the moment ... and finally I got this with some pay off (bite by leech... spent ~hours to chase it ....they are just too shy/sensitive with my movement ... then again ... longer macro len will help, if I have one :D )
... love ...

2. patient Bee in Fly (BIF)..., last week was 4 days holiday for Malaysia and I fully rest in my in law house but still walk around the garden and saw a Carpenter bee keep flying around few spot .. and I don;t want to miss the opportunity then brought my gear with longest available (SIGMA150 + 1.4tc + flash) and spent 2-3 hours to chase the BIF

there 2 methods I use to capture below picture
i. AF, pre AF those leaf close to the bee stop by or flying around ... then while it get close just move my focus point close to it and press the shutter ... keep trying ;D and I get
I am leaving

cadid shot

more can view from my flickr bee set

ii. MF , pre focus the place where the bee normally flying around or stop ... (failure rate is higher) ....then while it come close by (depend on luck) then press shutter .... (here then I hope I have faster fps camera :D, that's y I always say ... never say we don;t need but it is good to have)
... did u ask for permission to snap my picture ?
