micro photography

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
iv'r recently started doing some micro photography, photography has always been a hobby of mine but i saw a show on fox about the micro stuff and had to try it out, i still have a lot to learn lol but it's so much fun

here's one of my first shots lol






the leaves are about a centimetre long and four millimetre's wide so they are pretty small

very nice .......I have a average digital camera with a micro mode that is pretty cool..it is interesting to see closeups with details of objects you wouldnt ordinarily see..i usually use a semi micro mode for cat close ups!...

That's a nice shot! I want do do some micro too. If we make a thread of it, I may just upload a couple of my first attempts. Some I've already posted in other threads.

i just took another of a Thai chilli plant and found a littlen surprise when i looked at the photo on the computer



That spider was so tiny, i went back to look at it after i saw the photo and it was hard to see lol

Ooooo...very cool! My Grandfather used to do a lot of photography like that when he was younger. He was part of a camera club too. I know he won some awards for micro pics he did of mushrooms that were growing upside down under the living room window (on the outside of course!). You should see the stacks of slides he's got from thoes days.

Those are really great shots, it's great to see them.

I really enjoy macro photography and have loads and loads of photos, but I'll resist the temptation to post them all you'll be pleased to know . I don't have the facilities for micro photography.

A selection of some macro photography shots though

Those are some cool shots! I used to be into photography and would love to take it up again. I've been amazingly slow to get a digital camera though, I'm obsessing over details.

Beth - love the close up kitty nose! I just want to kiss it!

Aww thank you. Lily does have such a cute little nose.

It's amazing how that spider showed up in your photo - I didn't even notice it first time round and had to go back to look for it when you mentioned it!

Here is one that I posted a long time ago. It was a super close up done with the micro setting of a garden spider (not venomous) in my back yard. If you zoom up on a photo enlarger you can count the little hairs on this ole girl's legs. Some are even visible in this pic. Its cool, though some might find it quite scary But its just nature.

That is amazing . The longer I look at it though, the scarier it gets

I have too many Nakita pics so I'll post some other subjects.

A favourite flower at the cottage:


The original pic and the close up, a very small fly enjoying its day in the sun.


It took forever to take this picture since the spider kept climbing under the leaf. Finally it was fed up and went into attack pose.


A knot in a piece of wood:

wow!

That's an amazing micro, i love the spider too, beautiful colors. i'll try and get a photo of a redback if i can, i think their numbers have dropped at our place though, my husband went out to clean the shed yesterday and killed ten by incinerating them, he used a can of spray and a lighter then he came back in looking white and said there were wayyyy too many so we used a bug bomb to get rid of them.

They are beautiful to look at but i wouldn't want to get bitten, luckily there's never been any in the house,only the shed and under pot plants

i love th kitty closeup too

here's a kitty closeup i took yesterday, it's pandy's eye

OK, we just got new lenses for our cheap and crappy camera, so I have been playing and practicing to learn how to use them!

This is all I have so far with 15 minutes invested before the batteries died!


she was mad at me for taking her pics so she turned away from me and did that with her ears


and that's just her side with all her grey hairs!!

I took pics of hubby's grey hairs too but will refrain from posting those!!!

I'll tell you it's a lot better than what my hubby was taking pictures of to figure it out. Booby shots from my Cosmo mag. Clothed boobies!

it's so addictive, the only problem is, there aren't too many flowers where i live, i'm going to have a great time down south where there's heaps of bugs and flowers

I love these close-ups.
sbw999 - Eek! I remember the first itme you posted that! It just gets scarier!
Felicia - stay away from the redbacks. Seriously, the only Redback you want to get close to is the beer variety!

Ok, I had to revive this thread because I actually got a good photo of Kitters. Had to play for about 30 minutes to figure out the distance for a clear shot!! Anyways here it is:



I was trying to take pictures of her paws and got a couple cute ones then she stuck her face in the camera and I got that one! I was excited!!!
