Weekly #486 -- Macro and close-ups Competition
Ah - you thought it would be Bonfire night! I'd like to encourage you to try some close ups -- macro if you have the kit but not at all necessary. Find which lens focusses the closest, stick a 50mm on the wrong way round, get the extension tubes and bellows out. Tripods are useful, as are live view and 2 sec delay. I'm not looking for the most microscopic dainty bits but good composition and good handling of depth of field. Choice of subject is near limitless !
(I'm at a conference all weekend and don't know what time I shall be back Sunday so judging might be on Monday)
Have a good week ........ David
