09-02-2011, 09:01 AM
The level 2 assignment this month is, macros of any kind.
Feel free to use, Extension tubes, close-up filters, macro lenses, or even an 8 dollar reversing ring.
Ok then Who will post the first Macro?

OK, I will get this one started as well. I went on a long photo safari today (the backyard), and practiced some semi-macro (I need a macro lens). This is as close to macro as I can get with the equipment I currently have.
I was looking for a bug or two to shoot, but with the tropical storm that is about to hit right here in the next couple days, there were none to be found, only a camera shy lizard.
A macro lens on the wasp nest would have been great, looking down into the combs

Love them Mushrooms! Pratchett's guide to mushrooms: One: All fungi are edible. Two: Some fungi are not edible more than once.

Ha, ha, that's funny, and common sense. Thanks for the comment.

I tried to get a close up of her face with an old manual Nikon 105 micro lens. Not that easy to do. She moves around constantly. The only way to try and do it was to slightly rock back and forth a bit to find a focus and at the last second she turned her head upside down. What a little clown!! If you are one of those that looks at exif data, I have two non cpu lens and I forgot to switch to the 105 when I put it on the camera. So exif says 8mm. Don't believe it. :)

Here is my contribution ... while on a walk with his Gregness last Sunday, we encountered a pile of things, amongst others mushrooms of sorts. So here are two macros:
I call this one:
I ain't eating it! Give it to Mikey, he likes everything! - Or: Hanging out at the Bark Sweat Lodge ....
And this one would be:
Dammit, now you cracked the cup!

Cool looking spider, WD. Nice shot.
Here's another one of my nifty-fifty macros.

Shot with my 5DmkII, using an inverted lens. Light source is a plain old tungsten light.

Another makeshift macro from today's visit to the Halifax Public Gardens.

Here is my latest attempt, trying to catch the process of licking up pollen.
Canon 550d, tamron 17 -270 lens with a +4 and +2 close up filter.
