Macro Monday - Volume 32

Welcome to Macro Monday - Volume 32. Granted that it was hot this weekend in Arizona, I was able to still get some shooting done. Not only did I shoot with these beautiful Daffodils, but also worked on another class project. Here you can see the beautiful Daffodils that I worked with. However for macro I wanted to get a little more details.

Macro Monday - Volume 31

Welcome to Macro Monday ~ Volume 31. Whenever possible, I love to work with the intricate flower called Ranunculus. My heart skipped a beat this past week as they were available at Trader Joe's.

Although this little bud didn't open, nevertheless I felt compelled to photograph it...

Macro Monday ~ Volume 30

Welcome to Macro Monday ~ Volume 30. Until now, my macro photography consisted of flowers or pastry. However this weekend I was looking for something different. The current state of our backyard is not good; full of weeds. With this being the weeds gave a different subject to photograph this week: a honey bee. :) As soon as I saw that little critter moving toward one of the big weeds, my lens was on him.

Macro Monday ~ Volume 29

Welcome to Marco Monday - Volume 29. Most often I do my macro work with my Tamron 90mm macro lens. From time to time I like to challenge myself. So, without further adue, here are my images for Macro Monday. My choice this week were the Edge 80 with builtin macro, and the Sweet 50 with Macro converters. First up is an image with the Lensbaby Edge 80 and its build in macro converter:

Settings: SS 1/1000 - f4 - ISO 125

For the second image I used my Sweet 50 with the Macro Converter. I wanted something really dreamy, so I set the aperture to 2.8. My intended focus was just on one of the nearest to me petal.

Settings: SS 1/250 - 2.8 - ISO 125
