...thought this was a nice composition !
Fuji S2 + Tamron SP90 - 1:125 @ f/22 - ISO 100 - RAW
...then i went closer...
...that's when i noticed it was inhabited !
100 % crop of the full scale RAW !
(BTW, the bug is also visible on the first pic... i just saw it now :wink: )
But it's more interesting when you see the flower LIFE-SIZE:
That's cool...I wouldn't have guesed it was that small had I not seen it hand held. I really like the symmetry in the first shot....makes for nice composition.
Wonderful series of shots Jean-Pierre. What great detail in the first image.
What a lovely shot, Jean-Pierre!!!
These are teriffic...
REally beautiful work.
Thanks for sharing
Nice shots Jean-Pierre, and nice little series and narration.
an excellent series and nice details - then seeing the actual size is fascinating!
Jean-Pierre you are making great pictures!
Do you use a studio setup?
I think you use a black background, but what lights?
Would be great to learn fom one another.
The little critter is nowhere to be seen in this shot ;-)
Great series Jean-Pierre!
Nice shots Jean-Pierre. Looks like an aphid. Its amazing how much detail is retained.
I too sometimes miss seeing the bugs when I get caught up in composing the shot. Sometimes, however, the bug really can make the picture interesting. Here's a shot of our white lilac I took last year. I didn't even notice the crab spider when I took the shot
Thanks for sharing.
Hi Dennis ! Thanks for looking... As for your white lilac shot, it's even more "difficult to see this spider on it, as is "melts" very well with the petals...
PS. I would have tried to lighten a bit the overall pic, but maybe it's my screen ?!?
Hi Michael ! I usually shoot the macros on a "studio" table... I don't use sophisticated lighting, only the on-board flash of the camera (or sometimes an old ring-flash) reduced to the minimum power, to trigger one or 2 wireless slaved flashes ! The background is a piece of mate black material, and i build two L-shaped reflectors out of 100x50 cm. (2'x4' feet) white acrylic. See https://www.nikoncafe.com//forums/viewtopic.php?t=4319&highlight= for a picture of the set-up !
Hi Jonathan ! As i shot this pics a few minutes after the others, and before i saw the bug, i'm affraid i might have squashed it with my little fingers... !
Jean-Pierre, i really like your second picture and the softness of the lighting.
