Ibis’s in the park, Macro Style   1 comment

I went to Roma Street last Friday on the way to work, for a look around and to check out Macro possiblities.

So set up for Macro, with 60mm Macro lens, of course I would get a birding opportunity.

I captured this Ibis sitting on top of this post, looking very regal.

 

And then he flew off.

As previously mentioned, these were taken with 60mm Macro lens on a 7D.

Cheers Dave

Ducks in the afternoon sun.   Leave a comment

We went to the local Duck Pond, last Sunday afternoon and I captured these Ducks  in the afternoon light.

I was using a Kenko 1.4 teleconvertor with the 70-200, to see if I could get some quality photos, verdict is ( if there is good light) yes, so may use this combination again.

 

Cheers Dave

 

A Bunch of Flowers – Candids   2 comments

Okay, it would have been easey to shoot the whole bunch of flowers, and they looked very pretty, but there was no fun in that.

So here are some “Candids” from a bunch of flowers.

Cheers Dave

A random Butterfly   Leave a comment

We were out the other week, scouting locations for a Portrait shoot, and this Butterfly flew across the path, stopped only for a minute, enabling me to quickly snap a photo, and it was gone.

Not the best Butterfly photo, I have taken, and he looks a little battered, but I still like it a lot, and felt the need to share.

Cheers Dave

Grasshopper – experimenting with Extension Tubes for Macro Photography   5 comments

I have had a set of Kenko Extension Tubes for a long time, but have never really used them, but was filling in some time, and thought it would be a good time to test them out.

This photo was taken with 70-200mm and 20mm extension tube on a 7D ( this is a very heavy set up for macro)

This one was taken with 24-105mm again with 20mm Extension Tube on 7D ( both with external flash )

I was then going to take some photos with a proper Macro lens for comparison, but for some reason Mr Grasshoppper took offence at the flash going off in his face and flew away.

Cheers Dave
