Macro Monday: The Cradling Hand
I kinda love that shot.
The tendrils of the maple leaf, the soft lace of the snow.
Winter here seems to be fast retreating — this morning, the songbirds outside are distinctly not of the winter variety. And last week I saw a veritable fuckdumpster of robins (which is their collective noun, by the way — a murder of crows, a parliament of owls, a fuckdumpster of robins). I am more than happy to be shut of winter, for winter is crap.
Oh! Real quick, some folks have been asking what macro lens I use.
It is this one: Canon 100mm macro lens. It’s heavy as a brick, and I think there’s a newer, lighter iteration? I’d love to get a rig set up that lets me get even closer to the bugs and snowflakes and waterdrops (the Canon 65mm MP-E is an option, I think) but that is a problem for Future Me (and likely a costly problem, though maybe there are ways to rig it more cheaply).
ANYWAY, HEY IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, SOME NEWS.
The mighty Luke Ross is gonna draw it.
And apparently, some chucklehead is going to write it.
THAT CHUCKLEHEAD IS ME. CHUCKLEHEAD WENDERG. WOO.
First issue is already (mostly) in the can, and I’m cracking along on the next couple. And ICYMI, The Shield #2 came out last week, and Hyperion #1 comes out in March. I have officially stowed away on this boat and am hiding amongst other comic book professionals and hopefully they don’t find me and jettison me overboard.
That’s it. Enjoy your week.
