Shooting Macro Is Challenging And Enjoyable.

Shooting macro is a challenging and enjoyable aspect of digital photography. But what equipment do you need to get good results? Over the past five years I have progressed to using my ideal setup, particularly for floral photography, that is my Canon Digital Rebel plus a dedicated Canon macro lens, which was purchased used but in mint condition.
 
Andrea Corrie Photography  Andrea Corrie Amaryllis are particularly difficult to capture but with the above, I was able to get the following shot with natural lighting.
 
However, by a curious set of circumstances, my first, secondhand digital camera, a Ricoh RDC-7 has made its way full circle back to me, and I thought it would be fun to compare the results. This little camera impressed me with its macro capabilities from the outset. I sold it on to a colleague when I bought a Canon S50 and she in turn sold it on to another colleague when she upgraded her camera. Finally the second colleague offered the camera back to me when she replaced it, as she knew I had retained my 'soft spot' for it.

The following images were taken at the same time as the first image. Andrea Corrie Photography  Andrea Corrie    Andrea Corrie Photography  Andrea Corrie

I guess if you look closely you will see more noise and of course there is no control over depth of field, but I believe these images show that you do not need to have the top end of the range in either camera or lenses to be able to produce effective macro shots.

Beautiful Pine Warbler At Our Feeder On Cape Cod.

I kept seeing glimpses of yellow feeding at the Mealworm feeder that is usually only used by the Bluebirds. Hmmm… It looked very much like a American Goldfinch but they don’t eat at that feeder and the coloring was a bit off. Phil and I had downloaded the IBird Pro app on our phones a … Continue reading Beautiful Pine Warbler At Our Feeder On Cape Cod.
