I'm a bit nervous posting here with all of you wonderful photographers. But I'll never learn if I don't share. :smile: Here are a few shots I took with the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8. It isn't true macro, but it's the closest I have. I had a hard time metering and ended up with a lot of blown highlights. How can I avoid this in the future but still get the correct subject exposure? I am open to all comments and critique! This is my first attempt at macro. These were all taken at 75mm with spot metering and sunny white balance. f/2.8 1/3200 ISO 100 (probably should have stopped down for more DOF) f/2.8 1/200 ISO 100 f/5 1/160 ISO 100 f/2.8 1/1250 ISO 100 (blow highlights on pedal) f/2.8 1/80 ISO 360 and this isn't a macro, but I thought it was cool 42mm f/5.6 1/200 ISO 100 The Chocolate Fruit and closer f/2.8 1/500 ISO 100 Thanks for looking!
