Default Pre Season Macro with 105VR/TC-17

Well, record warmth has allowed an early chance to become familiar with macro again. I'm rusty, and to be honest, I still need to get the hang of using the FX setup.

Not much to shoot at yet, and insects are all small.

D3s/105VR/TC-17/SB900/Metz 15 MS-1

Ground Ivy - Always a problem on my yard f20 at minimum focus and 1.7x



Ants - F20 still on the small side for DOF at minimum focus.

Oh boy!!!!

I wanted more DOF and cranked down the aperture to f32. The dust What's one to do???? The clone tool was hot to the touch after these two shots. The dust buster of the D3s doesn't measure up to the standard that my old Olympus set.

Anyway, here's the result.



A Dandilion bloom

....hi Greg, I've just recently been introduced to 'macro' the little flowers of early spring and am having fun doing them, some like the bloom of the herb rosemary are amazing to see. Those little 1/4 - 3/8 inch blooms I found have all the same properties as do the 2 - 4 inch models...having fun. My weapon of choice has become the Oly E-P3, EX-25, FT 70-300.

ALWAYS, I've enjoyed your macro photos so very much and am looking forward to when you get the new setup working to your expectations for images of those l'il critters and things.

Thanks Bob,

Its fun for me to enter a different world where little things get big. The blooms on things like ragweed are awesome, and a bee or two crwling on them are fun too.
