Macro Monday ~ Volume 28

Welcome to Marco Monday – Volume 28. In contrast to my usual color images, I felt compelled to format this week’s images in black & white. As mentioned in this blog post, Caroline’s workshop has also touched on B&W processing.

Settings: SS 1/80 – f8 – ISO 500 – Tamron 90mm Macro Lens

Settings: SS 1/200 – f8 – ISO 500 – Tamron 90mm Macro Lens

Macro Monday ~ Volume 27

Welcome to Marco Monday – Volume 27. Although I have not felt that great this weekend, I needed some macro time. At first, I wasn’t sure what this plant is, but Goggle to the rescue. Typing in “purple plant”, reveled that this pretty plant growing in our backyard is call “Purple Heart“. Oh, how it is fitting for the month of February.

After taking Caroline Jensen’s LR processing class “Communicating with Color and Light“, I have learned to draw the viewers eyes. Of course, good exposure it essential, but sometimes underexposing an image is just as compelling.

Settings: SS 1/125 – f5.6 – ISO 1000 – Tamron 90mm Macro Lens

Settings: SS 1/200 – f3.5 – ISO 1000 – Tamron 90mm Macro Lens

For the most part, Caroline’s class was about processing your images. However, Caroline also mentioned to approach a subject in different ways. My hope is that the above two images give you an example on how to approach the same subject in different ways.

Macro Monday ~ Volume 26

After a brief absence from Macro Monday, I am ready to share again. As some may know, the new year did not start as well as I had hoped. Macro photography truly is a great distraction for me personally. Last weekend I starting shooting again. To be honest, it was the best thing I could have done for myself.

Today I want to share two different images of the same subject The first image is a close up of a beautiful Gerbera.

Settings: SS 1/640 – f9.0 – ISO 640 – Tamron 90mm Macro Lens

For the second image I used the last light in our backyard. I wanted something different, and believe that I have achieved just that. Last week I posted the image on IG, and it was featured by Macro_Moms. As a result of the feature, my photography reached a greater audience. 🙂

Settings: SS 1/320 – f11 – ISO 640 – Tamron 90mm Macro Lens
