Whoa? are those her natural eyes? if so... DAYUM!! those would maake for an awesome macro! Also, no idea what you mean by micro-calibration, would you share some insight on that?

Off topic, get that girl some chap stick!

Hahaha yeah they are close to her natural eyes. I had to boost the colour a little as they are a little dull in crappy light.

As for AF microadjust, its the slight adjustment of the body lens combination to make sure that you dont get front focus or back focus.

As you like her eyes so much, here is another one... (these are popped)

Some Canon cameras have an AF micro adjust function (in AF drive custom settings menu). You use a focus chart to test the focus wide open and adjust the slider accordingly. You can register up to 20 lenses and i believe its included in the 50d, 7d, 5d2, and 1d series.

You use a focus chart like this one.. http://focustestchart.com/

Have you tried using a polarizer? Look into it, looks like something you could use.

I agree that the contrast might be a bit too high. They do look cool though.

It's pretty cool taking them, do get an assistant though.

I knew Draconian Guppy was going to flip out with those shots as soon as I saw them.

Now, on to some of the stuff I had not uploaded before:

4419428213_0fa34e24db.jpg

Similar to others I had uploaded, I like the way the water splashed on this one, though it's a shame the apple slice was completely on one side (and the ugly one too).

Basically the same info applies for this shot as for the previous ones similar to it so here is the copy/paste:

For this shot, I built a small white box. I used four sheets of 24 lb white paper (98% whiteness), the first one was on the bottom and I put a transparent plastic over it. The other ones were used to go behind and to the sides of the water glass, I put it together with stick glue and some basic cuts & folds. I left the top and front uncovered (so I could drop the fruit and take the picture respectively) used a relatively long focal length to "flatten" the image and lit it with a flash (I currently have a borrowed Nikon SB600) by using test mode, the flash was at 1/4 power, set at 24 mm and separated a couple of inches from the back of the "white box" pointing to the front of the box (that's why it looks back-lit).

What I did is turn off all of the lights and put the camera in bulb mode (I have a wired remote for controlling the shutter while in bulb) and the in the dark drop the fruit and press the flash's test button as the fruit hit the water; this obviously required coordination and there were quite a few times when I lit the flash too early or too late (or hit the rim of the glass with the fruit).

If you're going to do this I'd recommend finding some material which is white, translucent and doesn't absorb water.

4421480546_7f8a9f2fa3.jpg

4423837678_dcb34cbeba.jpg

Now, these two were taken in the same sink as the spoon I had shot before. Basically left the camera on a long focal length and a relatively wide aperture in manual focus and using a wired remote I activated the shutter in bulb mode. While the shutter was open I used a Nikon SB-600 at around 1/16 power to freeze the action (the room was completely dark). I used bulb to position the flash in a direction other than directly in front of the camera (I don't have wireless triggers or PC cables).

The difference between the first one and the second one is I basically let more water flow for the second.

4425376835_c7614506b5.jpg

This is a shot I took last month, for this one I used natural lighting IIRC. The B&W conversion was made using the BW Natural 1 preset and making some slight adjustments on it.

4430777706_382079c207.jpg

Finally, this is a photo I took at the Coldplay concert here in Monterrey, M?xico. I did not have any sort of press pass (I don't really do that, sadly) so I could just take in my P&S, this shot came out rather nicely even though I was not in the front row.
