Flies
Lens: F 50mm macro Camera: K7 
Posted By: OrenMc, 04-09-2010, 06:46 PM

Just a couple quick shots tonight so I can get in a little practice.
I would really love to get this macro thing down well.
Both are handheld shot with K7 & F 50mm macro and Sigma EM-140 ringflash.
hope you enjoy!

These are pretty cool! I love the DOF fading out on the second one too. Amazing how beautiful (and a little gross, I just noticed the hairs on that fly) photos you can get with a good macro lens.

Oren, I think the first one is very good!
Besides the technical points, which are ++,
I think you did very well on the composition
too, which is not always easy with macro!

Glad you all enjoyed them.
Added one more for good measrures.

Rense, I don't know what was wrong with this fellow but I was able to position it a little. I would just put my finger next to it to get it to turn.
As well as it was cooperating I should have draged out my trypod and extension tubes.

Wow, great capture! I really like how the ringflash fills in the shadows and also allows you to have a fast shutter speed.

Thanks for sharing.

Great macro's mate well done, how close are you from them? They would be pretty hard to shoot, flies never stay still!

Thank you Tuner, the ringflash is nice but I still have figured out how to use all the features properly.

Thanks for sharing.

I should have taken the time to set up a tripod and I could have improved on then I think.

This one seemed to be a little shook up so it made it a lot easier. I probably was around an inch from it.

I love it, bug macros scares me. With an 50mm Macro lens too, you must've gotten pretty close. I wonder what kind of fly that is.

Thanks Paul,
flies aren't the most popular creature but they do have some interesting features..

I want to say its a common house fly but I really don't know. It did have a little size to it.
Thanks for the comment Dave
