Macro work
Posted By: JMR, 07-21-2009, 06:39 PM

A few macros from the park. A little visitor dropped by while I was shooting and left in a blur!

Great job!

Macro flowers might not be everyone's cup of tea but I like 'em just fine.

Like Heather, I especially like the third shot.

We all beat ourselves up trying to get the sharpest macro, upping the Fstop to F22, needing to flash the crap out of the shot to get a bit more sharpness and dof...

These are soft beautiful works of art... Thanks for the reminder. I used to know of this.

Lovely studies (I won't demean them by calling them shots) of Borage and Echinacea.

Many thanks to everyone for the comments. It's all hard work, lining and realigning all the time to get the right angle and look. I am looking for a used Pentax macro manual lens so I don't have to fiddle with all the controls. Until then its a blurry one-eyed slugfest.

Hey Gus, I am sure we will see some of your works soon.

Thanks Gary. Somebody of Italian heritage stopped and asked me the name of the plants. He said they used Borage as a medicinal herb. And of course we all know about Echinacea. Now I know their names.

This was shot with 105mm Nikon macro, because I do not have a Pentax macro. It only works on manual and it is trial and error all the way using the rear display unit on the camera.

I enjoy the soft subtlety (for lack of a better phrase) of these photos, JMR - I particularly appreciate the last two.

Hey, thanks. I have always wanted to take shots like this but never had a chance because I didn't have a macro lens for a long time.

Thanks Georg. I have many images that didn't quite make it, because as I said before, macro is really hard work, and my eyes just don't see as well as they used to. One bit off using F2.8 or 3.5, and it goes from soft to out of focus!

Beautiful images. The soft focus works very well in these.
