Unfortunately, I don’t have a lens built for Macro photography, but I really wanted to do some close-up type work, so I sat there and messed with my lens to find as close as I could get and still have the lens focus on the subject. The big issue I’m starting to run into is lack of light. It’s getting dark awfully early out here, and my camera doesn’t perform well at high ISO’s. Also, it was windy, so being able to get a fast exposure is important as well. Regardless of these limitations, I did find a few photos that I liked, so here are a couple shots from my “macro” world.
The first is a set of berries that are growing in our distended flower bed by the house.
Next I found this tiny bug sitting in the center of a weed in that same flower bed. (We really need to get that cleaned up next year)
And After that I have a Dandelion in the dark. You will notice a glowing orb behind it, which you may mistake for the moon. This is actually the parking lot light at Arby’s behind our house 🙂
And here is one where I use my flashlight as a bit of a spotlight for the Dandelion
And for the final one, the closest picture I could get my camera to focus with.
I hope you all have enjoyed the Macro Plants.
