SUNDAY POST : Close -up
This will be my first time to participate on Jakesprinter’s Weekly Challenge. https://jakesprinters.wordpress.com/2012/08/11/sunday-post-close-up/
The theme “Close-up” is really challenging because it needs specialized lens and technique to capture the details that our naked eyes cannot see.
While we can see the fly on the grass, our eyes aren’t equipped to make out the fine details of the hairs on it’s body.
This is where macro photography comes in. It gives us a glimpse into the world of the very small, which goes largely unnoticed by us as we hurriedly shuffle through our day.
I took the shots above at our garden back home using a cheap, second hand lens which is at least 25 years old. I paired my SLT-A77 with the Minolta 35-70 macro lens. Here is the full details of the lens at dyxum site http://www.dyxum.com/lenses/Minolta-AF-35-70-F4_lens39.html
Besides getting a better lens, I would appreciate it you guys can let me know how I can improve in macro photography. Happy Sunday to you all. Cheers! 🙂
