I love the cold!/I’m a lying bastard!

Hi everybody,

I’ve always been extremely fond of macro lenses. As a matter of fact, I’ve shot more covers with a macro lens than probably any other piece of glass. For instance, macros are great for boxing. Why? Because traditionally, the lenses are deeply reset and the maximun aperture f/2.8 is a great f stop for boxing, fast enough, and enough depth of field to make the photo. Thank God they don’t have boxing outside in the wintertime anyway! The droplet of water, as simple as you can get, tack sharp. If you have a long macro lens, maybe you can even stay inside and shoot it. Stay warm, it’s only two more months before spring!
