Experimenting with Macro


So far I haven't been very successful with macro but I went out early for the morning light, and I think I got  these right this time.


We are always so complementary with our comments, but I wonder if any of you would like to help me improve with some good suggestions, fire away.  If you think it will hurt my feelings, just send me a private message (and you know who you are, my friend!!)

  1. These pictures are just awful. NOT.

    Just go in as far as you can until you can't focus, then move out. I use macro with a telephoto setting. Try that if you have it.
    I'd PM you, but I don't have your email....

  3. You and I had the same thoughts today Kate. I think you've done an excellent job here, I find with macro if I go in but not too close and let the camera do the zooming, it seems to work better for me.

  4. How large is the actual blossom in that top shot? I think you've done a splendid job with these, btw.

  6. What exactly are you trying to achieve with your macro shots? I think these are really nice flower shots.

  7. These both look really good to me. Did you post them as they came out of the camera or did you crop them to these results--just curious?

  8. I like these two. I think you did a good job. The top one makes me wonder about the actual size of that white flower. It I look at it against those bricks, and the bricks are normal brick size, than that is a huge flower. Or is it a trick of depth of field?

  11. That first photo looks like I giant flower. They all look great to me. I know nothing of photography. I notice that the background to the white flower is in focus while the background of the yellow one is not.

  12. I think they look good, but I don't know a thing about macro photography. The useful suggestions will come from someone else.

  16. The flower on top looks like a gigantic blossom. The size of the petals compared to the leaves is amazing!
