Thanks for that...I remember autosol as well.....don’t see it so much now, everything is plastic to save weight....as to a real 9ne, haven’t ruled it out as a retirement present yet, I still have the license....
I thought you had a Canon rig....nice camera the 5D, full frame sensor. I have that 24-105 lens as well, great lens, sharp as a tack...not sure what the minimum focus is though, so you may be a little close when you use it. Try it set at 50mm as that should be quite close to the way your eye sees the picture. The 180 macro is a bit fierce unless you move well away, it’s designed to give greater than 1:1 magnification so is really like using a magnifying glass....Apparently it makes a great portrait lens though....i have a 90mm macro and find that a bit much at times as well. Remember you can shoot a little further away and crop the photo in post processing, I find that gives a little more control over perspective and better depth of field (DoF).....you really need the small aperture to maximise DoF. Has your camera got a preset selection? My 7D has, so yours might. If it has, set it, save it, and then use it for this type of picture. All you will have to do is switch to it and not think any more before taking shots....
What I meant was: if your photos are 4000-plus pixels wide, you’re bound see more blemishes in them than in those the forum resizes to 1024 pixels.The 1024 limit is a resize feature, not a crop.
That’s why I usually crop photos like this:They just get made the right size to make the width fit the format....It’s why they are all different heights....
Thanks for the support...
If you could look I would be grateful...could be inexperience on my part, I cut the tubing according to the instruction, so all four are too short to do as you suggest..also, wouldn’t that interfere with the fit of the petrol tank?
