Roger2011 Loc: Central Illinois
 
I'm Roger and pushing 79 years old, hoping to do a few more interesting things before... For many, many years I occasionally pointed a camera at things and snapped, taking whatever I got. Only recently, with more time on my hands, I decided to learn a bit about photography, so I signed up for an iPhone photography class. I've done some near-macro photography using focus bracketing on an iPhone/Moment lens combination and stacking in Affinity Photo. I'm taking photos of the moon using a Canon EOS R camera connected to a cheap Celestron Newtonian telescope with an equivalent focal length of roughly 2100mm. I have macro lenses capable of up to 5X, a StackShot Macro Rail setup for focus bracketing, and a CamRanger 2. Except for the moon, I'm more interested in shooting anything that doesn't move faster than me so that focus bracketing will work. My wife says I'm gonna need a lot of help using all my new toys, which is why I'm happy to have found Ugly Hedgehog - Photography Forum.
