No idea what this is called but I was wondering around my husband's grandmothers flower garden, saw it, and took a pic of it.
Very interesting and beautiful work. Glad to have found this site. I love doing macro photography so looks like a place to learn more.
I'm glad you enjoyed the visit Jenni
i always recommend that site because of the categories and the easy search facility, you can find a theme quickly and study the excellent fine art.
Wow Gary, I am still reeling from looking through the photos (works of supreme art) on the website you have just mentioned. They are simply stunning!! :)
Thought you may like the sugar trick he he
its especially good with leading ants to exactly where you want to shoo them..
There is the wikipedia definition
A broader view is taken over at 1X
thats a cleaver trick with the sugar drop. Ok what do you guys classify as marco, is it anything that is used with a macro setting on a lense or is it the distance of the subject. Can anything be used for macro or must it be insects. I have seen someone take a photo of those little statues and say its macro. Sorry for the questions. Just trying to understand what classifies something as macro or just a good zoom in.
to answer your question, you need copious amounts of patience and then some!
Using a purpose built macro studio helps control the light and sugary water also helps control the path of the bug - outside they are mostly slow if not comatose early morning befor the sun warms them up!
I don't entirely understand the second question?
"And do all you photos get edited if so is that truely taking a pic"
Why would they not be?
Before any image even reaches a computer it is edited within your camera by whatever contrast curve, hue / sat, sharpening etc settings you have dialed in.
I shoot in raw so i prefer to edit more accurately than the camera can in a proper work flow..
Editing can become quite intense and time consuming on some subjects, for example look at this link here:
That image of a Cuckoo Wasp took 239 exposures @ .03mm steps
Although i suspect in this case the wasp was possibly deceased :)
