...here's my first real attempt at macro nature photography. taken this morning in my garden i have to say those who do this regular I take my hats off to you as it's not easy at all.....that's the censored version
all comments,crits and advice warmly welcomed
As a first effort, it's not bad at all, it could do with a little more DOF, don't be frightened to experiment with smaller apertures (F8-13) and if necessary higher ISO's to give you better shutter speeds. If you can use a tripod, do so, but when doing this kind of photography they can be a major hinderence. Be prepared to get stung by nettles, bees, wasps and lots of other nasties.....I hate Horseflies.....grrrr
But don't lose heart and keep practising and the results will come, you've got yourself of to a good start already with the lens your using which is a very capable piece of kit. Good luck and I look forward to seeing some more work from you.....
As Ade says keep trying and the rewards are great. Buy some knee pads as well and be prepared for mud and bites. DOF is the hardest part as you are in so close and thus hyperfocal distance is non existent. A tripod and remote release are essential or a beanbag for the lower ones.
Good pof on this one and well focussed on the eye.
Great start, you've got some nice detail in this. Macro work can be very frustrating at times but it's worth it!
Great macro for a first attempt!
Great start Gary, keep them coming.
