Up close and personal

By dudler
We found stuff sprouting on a bit of wood in the garden yesterday: several attempts at pictures followed. They culminated in this, using a tripod: it is significantly sharper and more detailed than the initial hand-held shots.

And this set me off thinking about macro, and a pearl of wisdom form Amateur Photographer a few weeks back. HERE's the link to the blog that followed.

I don't plan to try the things for breakfast. Just so you know (though the news makes me think Janet may have been putting something in my tea lately, and it's not Cyril Joystick's Medicinal Ovaltine...).

A wonderful macro John.
I had my macro training with fungi and a reminder always to do your gardening,
by removing any distractions before taking the shot.

Excellent macro image, John. I have the Olympus 60 mm f2.8 macro lens but find I tend not to carry it about unless having a special purpose in mind. I invested in the new 12- 45 Olympus f4 Pro lens. It focuses to 12 cms, so hopefully cover most close-ups and also normal shooting. Time will tell!
