Macro Practice





Still getting to grips with my Macro lens, and thought I'd ask all you camera buffs your honest opinions, Please.

To me, the Roses are deffo not sharp as they ought to be.

Just slightly out of focus...
I practiced on leaves, marbles, and toy spiders. Coins is another good subject.
My camera dose not have a 'Macro' setting, I still manage some good close ups, by close cropping after.

Lovely! I do love your shell photo. This is precisely why I want to get a macro lens... I paint watercolors of flowers, etc., and when I can get a good close-up, I see so much more detail to give me inspiration before I start painting.

(PS - I started a separate photo blog to keep my crafts and photos separate. The new link is on my profile.)

Could do with being a bit sharper,do you hold your breath when taking macros as the slightest movement can spoil the picture.

Cheers Mark

I love them Imac! The shell is superb.... and the last shot of the rose.... how beautiful. They are all very pretty! I don't have a Macro lens just a setting on my camera for Macro.

PS Thank you so much for visiting Brianna's blog! It means a LOT to her!

I think they all look good but I especially like the pampas grass. I have a hard time with macros as they are all blurry and I can't figure it out. If I get a good picture of anything it's usually by chance!

The roses could be a little sharper...but they are pretty anyway. :)

The focus can be better indeed. I have a closeup convertor for my camera and most times it's not sharp because the autofocus fails. Manual focus would be better but I can't see anything on the lcd in daylight. I like the photos.

I think they all turned out to be beautiful.

Macro lens are super fun but often tough to get sharp images without a tripod. (In my humble opinion) :) :) At least for me it is!! The lens works a bit different with the depth of field than others from what I can tell with mine. Not sure which lens you have but it looks like you will be having tons of fun with it... Experiment often and try various f-stops..on the same subject. You will see the an amazing difference... Manual focus also works great with a Macro Lens...Good luck and look forward to seeing bunches of macro shots.. :) :)

I like the first rose, the 2nd one looks too dark.

I love the detail of the shell best.
