Just More Macro + Fun Photos

Hey guys!

 

Just dropping in for my weekly photo post! I am going to be showing you some more macro shots taken with my extension tubes and I am happy to report that I am slowly getting the hang of nailing the focus. πŸ˜€

 

 ❀ Just More Macro ❀

This is a lil old salamander that I found under a log. He was NOT pleased at my disturbing presence.

 

And my new favorite macro subject….COINS!

 

 

 

 

And some ladybug photos {which were hard to get in focus, which you can probably tell!}

 

 

 

This week I figured out a lot more in the macro department. I learned that it actually works better if you up your ISO {awful, right?} and DO NOT use a prime lens. I use my kit lens, and focusing is so much better that way. The coin pictures were taken with my kit lens.
This jar was a lot of fun {used my kit lens} and I was able to capture different colors in the jar…and then I upped the vibrance and saturation {quite a bit} to get this! It looks like an oil painting, in my mind.
And of course I promptly took a photo of my lens’ lid…which came out SO clear!
And now for my ‘crown jewels’ in the macro dept…
I love this last one! Look at that depth! I also sprayed more water on it, which looked better.

What do you think of these interesting edits? Aren’t they neat? I was thinking of using them as Watchful’s {novel I’m writing} new cover.

And that’s a wrap!
