Physalis

Been messing about with aperture again. I have to say that aperture experiments are addictive, as is focus stacking. Yes, I’ve discovered focus stacking. I can’t put up some of my images yet as they are part of my coursework for my BSc. Zoology (Adv. Zoology module) – these will be uploaded at a later date – but I was messing about with some of these Physalis from my garden. Here’s a couple of unusual focus shots and my first ever focus stacked image. My technique needs a lot of work.

LR Crazy

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.

I’m in it for the art…

Blues Hues

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.
