Category: Macro World
We had visited Soochipara falls a day before our trek to Chembra. The falls was a very good experience, especially the rollicking in the pool, with the early morning chill and the spray of water from the falls. But, my photo opportunity came on our way back, when I spotted water droplets accumulated on a spider web.
I took out the Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L macro lens for the shot and then only realized that I had left the tripod in the car. Light was a little low for the shot I wanted, but with ISO-800 and a -2 step exposure compensation, I could manage some shots handheld in Av mode. With an aperture of f/7.1, the best for this lens, the exposure time came to 1/200s. In the end, I was glad to get this result without using a tripod.
