Hi everybody, just joined Macro photos. I'm looking forward to some good discussions on the subject of macro photography. I can't afford the equipment to do any MICRO shots, mores the pity.
youtube. learned everything i know about photography from it. lol. well at least the technical side of things, and some of the post processing.
I think you are a little ahead of me when it comes to photoshop. I can do the basics, but ...... that's about it for me.
I shoot D7000. The macros was done with a standard VR 18-105 mm lens. I used a +1 and +2 magnifier lens for the bee. The Mantis I used the +1, +2 and +4 magnifier. I took about 15 shots and then stacked them in photoshop. Along with the dandy lion. Shot in RAW. Added some detail extractor in a photoshop filter to the images.
the D800 is at the top. the more expensive D4 costs a lot more and shoots faster, but doesn't have as many mega pixels. I don't shoot sports so this one works great for me. I just shoot for enjoyment these days. mainly scenic and so forth. my D800 only has about a thousand shots on it. I shoot my sony nex 6 far more. super fun camera to work with and makes great images.
People seem to like the "better than reality" look to photos nowdays. I shoot Canon and shoot raw of course and the reds and greens come out very strong out of the camera. I have actually had to desaturate them several times so the grass didn't look neon green. It's a sensor and processor thing inside the camera. You know, DIGITAL. Gotta love it!
That D800 is the new Nikon SUPER camera body isn't it? The wunderkind. Your lucky to be able to afford one of those! No wonder your pics look so good. I wish I could go full frame. Just a dream.
looking at it here at work it looks a little too vibrant for my tastes. he was covered with pollen and got used to me being close.
here is what I had going on.
Nikon 105mm micro
kenko extension tubes (all 3 baby).
Good one Fritz, the focus is right on and great colors.:-)
Thanks Mike, I was lucky with the Butterfly. He was on the ground and stayed there for a long time and I was able to get almost right up on him.
