Macro

My Birthday Flowers

got some gorgeous flowers for my birthday and what better way to remember them – shoot macro!

100mm, f/2.8, iso100, 1/10 sec, canon macro lens ef 100mm 1:2.8l is usm, canon 5d mark ii


Chrysalis

My nephew, Andrew found this outside of the unit I am staying at.  It was so gold and green I just had to get an image of it.  Will see what it looks like tomorrow… maybe it’ll be gone…


Technicolour Rocks


Squeezed

One of my favourite shots from the day at Terrigal


Crevasses

Another shot using my macro lens at Terrigal on the weekend… something simple and different – the textures were so nice in this rock


Rubble

 

I’ve always had a passion for rocks – maybe I should have studied geology instead of finance.  They are just simple, beautiful objects – such intricate detail if you just take the time to look at them.


Layers


Sculpted

 I was rushing back to the car whent he rain set in, but had to stop and unload my gear to get this macro shot of the rocks.  It’s so intricate in detail.


Busy as a Bee

Pollination

Spring is here and the bees are out in force on my unmown backyard!  My biggest dilemma with this shot was the correct spelling of “pollination” e or i!  After googling university websites, I have decided to stick with “i” even thought it looks wrong initially 🙂

Hope you enjoy my macro shots!


Bounce


Uninvited!

My Mum really liked this shot, she thinks there is a face in the water impact zone. 

After looking at it, it is quite eerie, so I thought it was worth processing.  I called it ‘Uninvited’ as the name seems to fit the image – at least in my home anyway…


Impact


Solitude


‘The Ripple Effect’

Wow!  This is harder than it looks – getting the focus right, the point of impact and the camera settings – a lot of effort and so many images to choose from.  Have a long way to go to get the shot I am after, but the challenge is half the fun with macro!  So enjoyable on rainy days!!!  This sums up the day outside and is called ‘The Ripple Effect’ as I can see my photography leaning more towards macro when I just can’t get out for landscape photography….. I love it!


A bit of fun with Macro

Had a bit of fun with some macro photography today, have a few more to process, but this was so much fun to photograph….
