Thanks. I just submitted the picture of the Green Gecko to another contest yesterday (http://www.landscapes.org/glf-2014/?contestants=green-gecko-landscape-parasites-seychelles), but if I find one suitable for this picture, I definately will! My dream is to be recognised as Macrophotographer…anywhere, at any scale =)

Ya it’s a little awkward. Im sitting on a log bent over sideways. You can see my one leg but can’t see the other. It does kind of look like I have no torso
Thanks! You’ve got to use what you can afford. You can sometimes get great results from subpar equipment. I’ve been really happy with the results from this cheap-o setup. Plus, it’s something you can easily take with you. I can keep the bobby pin
I work at a garden center and they pop up in mulch and flower pots often. It’s always interesting to see how high up the tree trunks their little spore packets can stick. Sometimes 2-3 feet.
Once you get to this kind of magnification, only a very thin line will be in focus. Standard rule for portrait photography is that the eyes should be in focus. Combine the two, you get this. Thing is though, you definitely are not able
Yes, but only if you’re working with water. You missed my entire point. We don’t need a temperature scale based on the freezing and boiling point of water because that’s not what’s useful in daily life. What is relevant is how warm or cold
Backside of an Eastern Hermann’s tortoise hatchling. For a size reference, [see this](http://i.imgur.com/zKYjGyr.jpg). More macro shots in the [latter half of this album](http://imgur.com/a/DuvMF#6).
I tend to find the neck of the mantis even more fascinating than the head when photographing them. So many interesting structures!
Great shot, and with the great resolution it can work as a wallpaper! Do you know what kind it is?
When I showed this frame of a Long Horned Beetle to my sister in law she said it looked like a teddy bear. Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (@5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both
Yep, VSCOCam and I believe it was F2 with a few tweaks to mostly the contrast and exposure.
Most things look ‘weird’ when you see a magnified photo. That is why I like macro so much. Its sometimes hard to believe that you didn’t notice the hairs, texture, etc on things you have interacted with so many times. Then there is the
That’s exactly it. They only show up in the most worn section with the deepest cracks. [I just took a few more shots as sun came out and killed them off](http://imgur.com/a/eqiox#0)
Accidental success? What does that even mean? You accidentally put your camera on the ground and there just so happened to be bug in front of the lens, and you successfully photographed this bug that you never intended to photograph? Like you tripped and
now THAT’s what I call macro porn. not to be an ass or anything but a lot of times what sneaks in here isn’t quite cutting it for my tastes.
The camera is a 5DII, the lens is an MP-E 65 f/2.8 1x-5x. The lighting is a single 270EXII fired via a Pixel Componor system. Since the spider was on a sheet of white paper, I got great lighting above and below. Natural light
Thanks so much! If you liked this one, I have *lots* more macroporno taken with this setup. I just have to go through them, do a bit of focus stacking, and other various other photochops. Prepare to be macro-titillated.
No shit, spiders and snakes don’t bother me. I take quite a few of spider picture. But I REALLY dislike wasps. I’m 6’5″ 270LBS. Believe me, if they would of lost their shit, It would of been a funny sight seeing me screaming like
Not a water droplet. water droplets sitting on top of water have to sit like this [\(link\)](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbGz1njqhxU), else they get absorbed when the water starts coming up the side like that.
>This 30x photo of a house spider was designated an Image of Distinction in the 2012 Nikon Small World Photomicrophotography Competition. Harold Taylor of Kensworth, Dunstable, United Kingdom, used image stacking to capture the image. http://www.scientificcomputing.com/news/2013/03/house-spider
[yyyeeeeeeeeeah](http://salestores.com/stores/images/images_747/NIS200TS.jpg) Seriously though, technically there is. Iron hotter than 770 °C isn’t magnetic. If you discern from my wording that I was somehow aware of that fact before seeing your question, then you have been most marvellously fooled! Muhahahaha
Soft / fuzzy objects are a pain in the dick. Start with stuff that has defined edges, elderberries for example. Also you’ll get nowhere without a tripod. adjust your focus as minutely as possible but also consistently. I use [Helicon Focus](http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconsoft-products/helicon-focus/) stacking software but
It’s not really the glass -I could have taken that frame with the EF-S 60mm + extension tubes (or with a Nikon camera + Nikon’s 60mm macro lens + tubes). Although not as obvious as stopping a balloon in mid pop macro is a
Ah yes, these little bastards. They love to grow around the lake in my neck of the woods. Hurt like HELL if you step on them barefooted (as I very commonly did) Edit: Wurds err herdd
