Shooting Macro Is Challenging And Enjoyable.

Shooting macro is a challenging and enjoyable aspect of digital photography. But what equipment do you need to get good results? Over the past five years I have progressed to using my ideal setup, particularly for floral photography, that is my Canon Digital Rebel plus a dedicated Canon macro lens, which was purchased used but in mint condition.

However, by a curious set of circumstances, my first, secondhand digital camera, a Ricoh RDC-7 has made its way full circle back to me, and I thought it would be fun to compare the results. This little camera impressed me with its macro capabilities from the outset. I sold it on to a colleague when I bought a Canon S50 and she in turn sold it on to another colleague when she upgraded her camera. Finally the second colleague offered the camera back to me when she replaced it, as she knew I had retained my 'soft spot' for it.

I guess if you look closely you will see more noise and of course there is no control over depth of field, but I believe these images show that you do not need to have the top end of the range in either camera or lenses to be able to produce effective macro shots.

Double-Crested Cormorant At Rock Harbor On Cape Cod

It was fun to watch the Double-crested Cormorants diving for food at Rock Harbor. There were quite a few of them and they were quite busy. They’d swim around bit and then dive way under. You never knew where they would surface, so you never knew where to focus your camera. This guy was right … Continue reading Double-Crested Cormorant At Rock Harbor On Cape Cod
