However, this small, unpretentious box allowed me to learn what I know today without disappointing me in the result. All other photographs were taken with a Canon 7D Mark II at 20.2 million pixels. The full format of 5,472 x 3,648 pixels at 300 dpi has been resized for the Web to 1,094 x 730 pixels at 100 dpi.
In September 2019, I replaced the Macro 100 mm f/.2.8 lens by the Macro 100 mm f/2.8 L IS, which offers excellent sharpness and a very useful image stabilizer for handheld photography.
For the more personal aspect of my photographic approach, what could be seen as a constraint upstream turns out in fact to be an asset... of size, if I can say, because it allows me to keep almost all the original photographs in full format.
If by chance – and it can happen to me – I am not satisfied with the framing but that the photograph deserves to be cropped under penalty of being put in the closet or thrown in the dustbin, I choose to save my photo.
When I consider a scenery, I look for the best framing as soon as the shot is taken because I absolutely want to avoid having to crop afterwards.
