So I started editing a bit to give my macro plant images a bit more character and unique quality. I liked the idea of toning everything down into moody blues and greys. I’ve done that with a few images and I’m really pleased with the results. In fact, some of these are almost the first images I’ve produced that I can say I’m actually happy with. Are these suitable for canvas? Maybe a couple. Would anyone buy them? Probably not! It would be nice to sell some.
Macro photography is utterly addictive to me. It appeals to the OCD, detail-orientated, obsessive side of me. As such, I cannot seem to get off the macro mode. I will do, in time, but for now the obsession is strong!
It finally happened. I finally got the camera I have wanted for a long time – the Canon EOS 5D III. Bought second-hand as I couldn’t possibly afford a new body, I also found myself a Canon 100mm macro lens in excellent condition. Let the experimenting commence! I have so much to learn…
These images are all hand-held so there is some movement and blur although I kinda like that. I have aimed for sharpness where it counts. Spot the two rogue EOS 60D images. You CAN tell the difference.
We had a visit to Twycross Zoo as part of my BSc. Zoology and Film degree course. I have to admit, I slightly fell in love with the Yellow-throated Martens…and of course, the Meerkats. The Bush Dogs are full of character, but don’t look like they care much for humans. They definitely have an attitude! The pelicans were incredibly photogenic on the water.
