Bee in the Air…

Posted by Dr Koh on Friday Aug 24, 2012 Under Photography

Tried capture using my Nikon D3s + AFS 60mm Micro lens. Really challenging.

No, Autofocus is not possible. You have to use manual focus, pre-focus on certain distance, and once the bee went into range, shoot!

This is what I hope to capture, not perfect as I was hoping for a front face view, legs down…

The above is actually cropped from a full view below. Impossible to get too close to the bee using 60micro lens.

Another shot.

1/3200s, F/5.6, ISO 4000

Need the high shutter speed in order to freeze the wing motion.
