    Learning to macro

    Snapped a few quick pics this morning. Just playing around a bit more. Unfortunately my battery won't hold a charge, so I'm very limited on playtime.
    I desperately need a tripod and battery for my remote. But my next lesson here is lighting/flash. As you can see..






















    Thanks again for the gypsi Andrew.. it's doing very well.

    Very nice.
    Lighting is key! I had cut the arm of a sundew and taking pictures of it, since I was on such a low shutter speed, the pics came out blurred because the arm was wilting. And since you are so up close, the slightest movement blur everything. Just a tip.
    What lens are you using?

    Practiced my focal point a little this evening..



    But then my battery started dying, so I just started snapping pics real quick.

    Great start! I love macro photography. Lighting is sooooo important. Small aperture, bright light, a solid tripod, remote shutter if you can, and you're set!
