    quick macro from this morning

    Quite fun, used a reversed 60 year old lens with 65mm of extension tunes.

    Hi Johan,

    Very nice composition and lighting, as well as nailing the focus.

    Good work,

    Thank you sir! Yes I'm quite pleased with my progress in supermacro - it's quite convenient because the garden is just outside so there's no need to trapse all over the place to get a reasonable shot.

    Not without its difficulties though because looking through a reversed lens at f11 means you're trying to focus with a horribly dark viewfinder. And even breathing means you're out of focus. So any wind and you're stuffed. Guess I got lucky.

    Well done Nass. I appreciate the difficulty with a reverse lens. You have done well. Could you tell me if you used an external flash or not?? To me it seems just a touch unerexposed. I use an external flash on mine. Keep trying . Also have a look at Thomas Shahan
    on Flickr or Youtube for the best in insect maco.

    Very Cool, now to my mind this is a very pleasantly photogenic fly. The colours and symetry of it's face are very nice and it reminds me of Victorian jewellry if that makes any sense at all. So.... I'm sorry if you were going for the creepy bug thing, but this guy looks like something altogether different to me. I like it. I've seen spider macros with the same effect, when all those eyes get into focus they look like jewels. My spiders on the other hand just look creepy, but that's OK too I guess

    Wendy I know exactly what you mean although I hadn't thought of it as jewellry I must admit . But it's all in the eyes, which was the effect I was after.
