Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Working the shot of a tropical flower, part of Landscape Photography: Tropical Scenes.
- Let's talk about some gear on what I'm using.…I've got a Sony a7R Mark II, beautiful 42 megapixel…high resolution sensor.…If I make a photograph of this flower that I really love,…I have the ability to print very large files,…which always gets me excited to see my work printed large.…And so that's the camera of choice.…I've got a dedicated macro lens.…This is a Sony 90 millimeter f/2.8,…and with a dedicated macro lens,…you're able to get incredibly close to the subject,…and so the more serious you get about macro photography,…the more important it is to have a dedicated lens.…
We've got a remote shutter.…This is going to make sure that I'm hands off…when I go ahead and take the picture.…I've got here this is a little pad from my backpacking trips…that I use for photography as well.…It's just a little foam pad.…I can set my gear on it, I can put my knees on it.…So it's just a lot of times, you're in situations…on the ground with macro work,…so it just adds a little bit of comfort.…I've got two tripods with me.…
