I was told for Mother's Day I should pick out a new lens. I knew exactly what I wanted. Something to take macro. I love macro. I want to see what is beyond the norm. Macro pictures feel quiet and peaceful to me.
This new lens gets really really close! The first picture is a two inch wide flower.
And I love it:
I l.o.v.e. being able to capture the fuzz on the stems!
Oh how I miss magnolia trees. This is also a magnolia just different and smaller than the southern kind!
These wrinkled leaves remind me of a newborn.
Sorry if that sounds weird.
These tiny white flowers are the size of my thumb nail.
Just HAD to try some textures!
So here are my questions for my fellow photo lovers:
How do I reduce the noise? I have never had noise problems until this lens. I know that ISO is supposed to help but I adjust it and get nothing.
How do I increase the dof? I push up the aperture but it doesn't seem to help. This lens works sooooo differently than my other lens. I am totally in love but struggling to find the look I want. I love a shallow depth of field but it is so incredibly narrow that I need to alter it a tiny bit at times just to get my focal point in focus.
ANY advice or comments are welcome!
I am just learnin' here on the curve!
I am my own worst critic. The first time I looked through the photos, as usual, I seemed to not like anything. I think that is because most were not how I envisioned them actually turning out. But when I leave them alone a few days and come back... I find a few that I like.
Hope you found a few you like. *smile*
