50mm f/1.8 D Macro shots (8)

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Kevin_d50, Mar 24, 2007.

  1. Well, being a bit of a macro hopeful, I attached a kenko tube to the D50 and 50mm f/1.8D, SB-600 off camera via SC-29 TTL cord and tripod, and ventured out into the garden today.

    Nothing spectacular to shoot, no nice flowers or bugs, but hope these give an idea.

    PP was by way of curves, contrast, and sharpening.

    C&C is always welcome of course.




    BLOOD VESSELS: dunno why I called it that ...

    BURNIN' PEAK: slightly missed focus here, apologies

    the CURL:

    ORB in SPACE:

    STICK it to me BABY: this one weren't in the garden, indoors ;) 

    Don't forget, all shot with an extension tube attached.
    Hope this helps someone

  3. These are pretty cool. I really like the last one.
  4. thank you logan!!!
  5. cheers vern, kind of you
  6. Cool shots! The last one is my favorite. The OF's graininess makes the pictures attractive.
  7. sorry Dao, what is OF?
    thanks for taking the time
  8. Sorry for the typing error. What I meant is Out of Focus (OOF). I found that the noise in OOF zones gives an artistic look to your pictures.
  9. I like your view of things, as usual.

  10. WOW! D50+50mm f1.8 +kenko tube= WOW!:eek:
