    Re: Post your best Macro shots



    Here's one from me. Yellow food colouring dropped into blue coloured water. This is a collision of two drops. As the first hits the blue water and bounces back up the second drop collides with it. I did this all by hand (no sound/ IR trigger) so I got about 10 keepers out of about 360 shots this session. The moment is captured by triggering the flash only while the shutter is open in a darkened room. Takes a LOT of patience but it's pretty cool when you get a good one.


    40D, 70-200f/4L IS @ f/14, ISO 200, 32mm Kenko extensiontube attached.Shutter set to bulb, 580 exII flash @ 1/128 power.

    It's a mushroom! Very nicely done! Indeed, a lot of patience is needed when trying to do water drops by hand. I'd be jumping if I can't get something like this. []


    Cheers!

    Not as creative as all those above but I was so excited to see flowers had bloomed in my gardent on Friday that I just had to get out the macro lens ...before it snowed Friday night and Saturday!

    Found this little guy in the back yard yesterday afternoon. I wanted to get some perspective as to how small he was so I put him in my hand and held it up in the late afternoon light. Looks like a dinosaur on a mission through the desert I reckon!


    40D, 70-200mm f/4L IS @ 78mm and f/7.1 with 24mm extension tube. ISO 400, 1/100sec
