  • Underneath the leaves

    I have never received any awards or recognition for my photos, but if I can earned a dollar for every weird stares I get from people at the local park when I do macro photography, that would be awesome enough. LOL

    I doubt this was an ordinary water drop being slimy and bubbly. Besides, it was a really hot afternoon. We were running from one shades to another.

    You can find a lot of interesting stuff if you just stop and look under the leaves.
    The Fly

    Now that's insulting. Even a fly would turn away and show me it's rear-end.

    Awesome macro shots! I can't wait to get a macro lens!!!

    I love it when people walk by my house and I'm out front with my camera sitting on a chair staring into the bushes looking for a frog!! It's even better when they come back around two hours later and I'm still there!! LOL

            Thanks Milind. I used my EF 50mm f/2.5 compact macro. Minimum focusing distance is 23cm.
            Pros:
            - very sharp
            - great bokeh
            - not that expensive
            Cons:
            - maximum magnification is only 1:2 (0.5x); 1:1 with EF Life Size Converter
            - have to get really close to get the max mag.
            - the sound when focusing is a bit loud

            If you have more cash to spend, better get the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro.

            Maybe I should include this in your composition post...

                  I wonder if I could get something similar with my EF 50mm f1.8...

                        Thanks Hayward. Out of these 4, I didn't expect to see but glad that the fly's shadow was captured.

                          All are very impressive Sparda. I stil have to try micro macro
                          No ppp necessary; it's all straight out of the camera

                            Thanks Chrean... The EF 50mm f1.8 is a very fast and good lens... But the EF 50mm f2.5 has a min focusing distance is half the length of the f1.8 lens; 0.23m vs 0.45m. This would probable make a difference.
                            Maybe you can take a few snaps and show us it capability for macros..

                            Thanks Helen... These are my 1st attempt at macro using an off camera flash.

                              I hadn't really considered the challenge of braving what people might think you as a part of becoming a photographer but it's true, isn't it? Give me weird over normal any day! I have to say my favorite is the last not just because it is such a good photo but I really like your introduction. "Trial of Faith" is a nice turn of phrase.
