Some macro this morning
Lens: Sigma 28-80 Macro Camera: Pentax istD 
Posted By: old4570, 05-18-2013, 06:27 PM









Im really trying to increase the f stop ( smaller aperture ) With the moth and fly , I used the cameras flash so as to maintain shutter speed .

Plant photos were with the help of a tripod ( no flash )

Tripods are better for stability, monopods really for just taking the weight off your arms when holding long heavy lenses at sporting events.
