View Full Version : A Little Macro Fun

With building the house have not had any free time to get out shooting so just a couple from the back yard at the rental place.

(just handheld, no flash, using 100L macro IS. Nothing spectacular, but at least getting out shooting a bit).

Nice shooting Hbg. I like that second one caught in flight.

All three are great, but the sharpness and detail in the third one is amazing.

well they are okay.

you know, if you're brilliant. :thumbup:

I love them all but love the second one the best- you caught a bee in flight which is incredibly hard.

Agree about #2 being the best and hardest.

Super set HBG - All very sharp and detailed. Not sure if it is just me, but I feel like I want to tilt my head on the 3rd one. Maybe rotate 90 degrees right???? Just a thought

Excellent macro work and understated as usual :) I'm curious to know some specs. You are using the 100mm macro lens but at what aperture?

Those are awesome! Nothing spectacular?????:confused:

Thank you all so very much for the unwarranted accolades. I wish these were as good as some I have seen. I did enjoy shooting them, and am pleased with the results with no flash, and handheld though.

Iggy: The first two were 1/1250 shutter speed, 8.0 A/V, and 800 ISO
Last one was 1/400 shutter speed, 16 A/V, and 2000 ISO
All shot with a Canon 1DMkIV, along with 100L is Macro mounted.

That last one is my choice ... the negative space bokeh is just perfect for this. Insects are ugly.
