we need to reverse engineer some gecko climbing gloves to climb buildings like spiderman.
Top 1000 Macro Pictures
1/200, but it doesn’t matter: There is no natural light in that scene, so the only light is the flash. Since I’m holding onto the flower with my left hand, and resting the lens on that same hand, the only motion I have to
They’re seriously the best tips you can get, short of custom molds. I thought the Westone 3 sounded like crap for years, but using the Comply Foam I finally hear what everyone likes about it.
it looks like archimantis latistyla to me, but its hard to tell for sure without seeing the whole body. Very pretty shot.
Manual lens, one handed shot other was holding flash. Stopped down to f/8. Guesswork. I hear about this thing called stacking, going to give it a try.
Thanks. Also if you don’t have a good macro lens I have heard of people holding their lenses backwards. Might be tricky. But possible. I also have an extension set I got off the eBay for very cheap. As these don’t contain glass, you
Looking at this made me scream like a baby then suffer from hysterical laughter after receiving a strange look from my friend..About a 
Like most of my insect macros I’m actually resting the lens on my left hand, the same hand that has the subject or its perch. With both the camera and the subject on the same “platform” there is no camera motion to compensate for,
Goddamn right the spider won. They post up on flowers for the sole purpose of killing bees for dinner. I love spiders. I love pollinators too but I have a deep respect for spiders.
It’s on my desktop now too! For future reference, all I did was plug the image url into [Tineye](http://www.tineye.com/), and sort the results by size.
wow this is such a great photo. I feel kinda dirty looking at it.
Thanks, and yes, I did in fact take it haha. I get asked about my setup a ton, but I love talking about it! I’m a HUGE camera geek. My setup is a Canon 5DII with an MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1x-5x lens. I use
Its called a Macropod. New system from a new company. Works pretty well, but I’m still learning obviously. The base is a Canon 6D. The system then autosteps the photos and the software stitches them together. Very cool system and I’m super excited to
https://www.flickr.com/photos/c4rr07/13189060545/lightbox/ is a reasonable example of one of my photos, but I was able use flash there, which I don’t often. And it’s not as close as OPs. EXIF data should be attached to the pic. https://www.flickr.com/photos/c4rr07/13189050925/lightbox/ is one where I didn’t use flash.
Backstory: Zombiewalk is a parade where people dress up as zombies and walk around a town. This shot was taken at the parade in Helsinki, Finland. The guy had contacts and a streak of fake blood streaming down from his forehead got between his
Yeah, I should probably try to find a new subject. I just like the idea of taking something you interact with every day and looking at it in a way you never have before.
Caries is a process that leads to what you know to be a “cavity”. A “carious lesion” is often simply called a cavity.
You just have to know the right time to go camping in Texas. Not during the heat of summer, which is from May to September, and not during hurricane season, which is October, and definitely not during ice-storm season, which is February.
Shot with a Canon 5D III and the 50mm f/2.5 compact macro lens. Processed (pretty heavily) in Lightroom.
Thanks, in a nut shell, you take several shots (in this case 10), where the focal plane is shifted progressively through the subject. So in the first shot, perhaps the front feet are in focus but the rest of the bug behind the feet
This is the eye of a Green Tree Python, which is not at all a pit viper.
I guess this isn’t true macro, but it’s getting pretty close. I think my next investment will be a prime macro lens. The canon 100mm seems nice, the canon 100mm L seems ideal because of image stabilization and a bit more sharpness, but I
Very Nice! Upboat. Still looking for a good clear shot of their foot? The hooks or claws spiders use for navigating the web and capturing prey have evaded my best efforts, always just out of sharpness…
I spotted this honeybee feeding in a zucchini flower and knew she’d be covered in some huge pollen, but the flower was very low to the ground and it was just a really bad angle to shoot from. So when she landed on a
