5 First Macros

by - Kim - July. 09, 2017 889 views

One of the advantages of having a four thirds camera is that its lenses are relatively inexpensive (in comparison to a full frame or DSLR). I recently got a macro lens, and got the opportunity to play around with it. Here are my first five macro pictures, and I am looking to learning more about this type of photography!

Beautiful, what is the first fruit or seed ?

It is a tomatillo -- similar to a tomato, but green and more sour.  It is often used in Mexican cuisine, like in green salsa or guacamole.  Thank you for your comment!

Do  you grow them or is it wild ? We have something similar, but they are wild. They taste like tomato. Thanks for the reply :)

I think you grow them, but I am not entirely sure.  We bought them at the grocery store :P

Nice first go at it. Macro always had got a shallow depth of field andba tripod is almost a must. The tripod I AM a bit lazy onblush

I think that I am rather lazy about using a tripod as well.  But I'll have to test it out.  Thank you for your comment, Peter!

Lovely...I'll be purchasing my first macro lens soon (100mm f/2.8) and can hardly wait.  I love macro!
