[Well then, here ya go] (http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/205/8/8/era_of_creativity_by_bonewrench-d58i5ty.jpg) :-)! First time posting here and all :j
Top 1000 Macro Pictures
I kill them all day long for work, they are actually kind of cute when you get to know them, and they aren’t stinging you.
I made [this] (http://i.imgur.com/aizIODI.jpg) years ago before I knew about the pringle diffuser, it’s just a kitchen roll, some paperclips to hold it’s shape, and some tape – makes for some [interesting catchlights] (http://i.imgur.com/mtnhZrh.jpg). It [slides onto the flash] (http://i.imgur.com/NfKTG40.jpg), and along with [the
I had a similar thought: “Uhg, first I have to toil all day, and now this human is taking pictures of me doing it”
Not sure. There are a whole bunch of “SFW Porn” subreddits that I don’t follow; I bet one of them would be more suited. It is a nice enough image, but it’s definitely not macro — it’s just a tightly framed shot, probably somewhere
Thanks! I use a less than traditional setup – 14mm and 7mm extension tube on the 40mm f/2.8 STM.
Well thanks. Yeah it was pretty much harmless – being bit by it felt like getting poked with a little bit of beard stubble. I used a zoom lens at 135mm and it focuses at about a foot or something, then I cropped it
That is adorable and terrifying all at the same time.
This beetle likes to eat my Lavender flowers. Now it’s in the neighbors yard 😀 Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on Kaiser adjustable flash shoes). This
Most certainly! I totally forgot about that bit, sorry that you had to ask. **EXIF** * Nikon D800 * Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8 Ai-S * ISO 1600 | 1/160 sec | f/11 + 68mm Extension tubes. Edited and cropped down to about APS size via Lightroom
This is completely insane. I feel like a complete boob for taking something as phenomenal as this for granted. Man, once in a while a photograph like this will inspire me to want to learn EVERYTHING with NO exceptions. BRB, have some books to
Is that an [ocellus](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_eyes_in_arthropods#Dorsal_ocelli)- the “third eye” looking thing? This subreddit has me looking up all kinds of stuff I never would have otherwise!
Those look a little like the [silk parts of samurai armor](http://imgur.com/IckDRm3) (the shoulders here).
[Tore apart an old Nikon Lens and scotch taped it backwards to my Canon.](http://imgur.com/a/Go7ir) I’m pretty sure these strange ripples in the bone are to prevent the skull from cracking when battling other bucks for mating dominance during the rut, for anyone wondering what
Thanks for the feedback. I do have a b&w version that’s a little deeper. This was a hand-held shot in natural light, so I was over compensating with the aperture as to keep from using an iso over 200.
[It’s a simple eye, or ocellus.](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_eye_in_invertebrates) The wasp family typically has three of these ocelli on the top of their heads. Here’s what you probably want to know: >One common theory of ocellar function in flying insects holds that they are used to assist
I love the results but hate the process of eye macros. My eyes get tired from “posing” and I tend to use flash so then I can’t goddamn see afterward. And of course two out of three shots will just be of my eyebrow
As technology advances electronics get smaller. They find better and more efficient ways to embed circuitry, find ways to require less. Its the same way hard drives have gone from being the size of rooms down to the size of a Micro-SD. They’ve even
Funny part of this is that I found a whole group of them in this one bush! At least 6 that I could find. [There were so many that as I was taking a picture of one, another crawled on my diffusion!](http://imgur.com/XxvHPoz) [Here’s another
Yeah, probably the best thing is to add light (which I know is really difficult outdoors without speedlights) so that you can get at least 1/60s at f/11 or smaller because a tripod makes it really difficult to focus and get the right angle…
I thought I remembered that this was a common misconception and googled it a bit. Here’s what I found: [There’s no scientific evidence that moths “need” those scales to fly, but – nevertheless – you should be careful in handling the wings since they
The compound eyes allow less light in, which makes them perceive the world as darker than it is. These simple eyes allow a precise measurement of light even when it’s nearing the end of a sunset or first light in the morning. On top
Thanks everyone. Some asked about the image numbers I took this image years ago before I got my big macro lens. Used an old reversed 50mm lens on a home made extension tube – not sure what aperture I used but I know it
To have naturally occurring sand, you first have to have tidal activity along your shore. Lake Tahoe is not large enough to generate tides necessary to create fine grain sand. That is why the 99% of it’s shore that isn’t commercially developed (artificial beached)
