Say hello to my Dad’s backyard! Macro style.
At first glance you wouldn’t think there is much to photograph in the backyard. It’s any backyard USA, or at least pretty normal for one that you might find in VT.
Therein is the beauty of macro photography, it’s a world unto it’s own!
It would have been nice to have my ring flash to use instead of using 1600ISO all the time but the macro lens with the F/2.8 does a pretty decent job @ that ISO even when i am LAZY and hand hold the pictures! :o
I am pretty sure this is a dying plant leaf as opposed to a regular leaf from a tree. You’d think i could remember a little more detail about images I took a mere 3 years ago! Oh well :)
Some sort of flower that has lost all it’s vegetation
I was loving the texture of this bracket and how the background color was such a good match.
This is a living version of the first picture, look familiar to anyone?
Leaves are SUPER fascinating very close up. Such an intricate vein system for the lack of a better description.
This is where I really missed my ring flash, to be able to stop down to F/11 to get more of him in focus.
But again, not too bad considering he was surely OTM (on the move). Had to really time my shots as he was bobbing and weaving all over the place.
