Close-ups of herbs with the Zeiss Touit 50mm macro on the Fuji X-T1
The Zeiss Touit 50mm macro lens is such a pleasure to use that I find myself looking for any excuse to put it to work. This morning, while at the farmer's market, I picked up some fresh herbs just so I could shoot still life images with it on the X-T1. The lens is really perfect optically and seems to be just the right focal length for studio macro work. Plus it's one of the few macro zooms I can actually use set to auto-focus all the time.
Everything was photographed with soft window light at f/2.8, except for the down shot of the group of herbs, which were taken at f/5.6.
