Pictures of people are better than pictures of plants, but the plants hold still and don’t worry about how they’re going to come across. Actually I’m trying to figure out how to use depth-of-field, but these are a decent side-effect of that study.

The thing is, the X-T1 has the greatest viewfinder ever and it makes me brave about stupid things like pointing a wide-open F1.4 lens at a complex 3-D tangle of stems. Granted, it almost never works; clearly, more practice needed.

Don't ever get a macro lens Tim - you'd never be out of the garden!

At the risk of stating the obvious, I have been caught out many times taking photographs through grass (e.g. of chimps) by the auto-focus latching onto some stalk of grass that wasn't the thing my eye was focussing on. In those cases I've concluded there's no choice but to go manual for the focus.
