Close Up Photography

Wednesday, March 23

As usual, I'm waiting until the last moment to post my photos for a photography assignment over at Views Infinitum.   I'm lucky that the nicest lens I have happens to be a 60mm macro.  I really should use it more. 
Here are a couple of the ones I liked best.  If you know me, I'm sure you're impressed because I really don't like bees, but this one was holding pretty still and didn't look like it was going to attack. 

  1/100s,  f/14.0  ISO 800

 1/100s,  f/10.0, ISO 800

 1/80s,  f/6.5  ISO 640

 1/80s,  f/2.8  ISO 1600

 1/80s,  f/4.0  ISO 800

I used a Canon Rebel T1i with a 60mm 1:2.8 macro lens for all these shots.  I got pretty lucky with the animal shots, but using a tripod for the other stuff would be helpful.

You have been be'sy too :-)
I admire your pet shots. I wonder how i could make my cat pose long enough for the camera to focus.

The dog and cat noses are fantastic!

Great shots, Deanna!
Nice detail on the bees, but the third one is my favorite.

I could not get my cat to sit still long enough. I'm impressed. Love the bee shots, too.
