Macro shoot out


Link Posted 28/04/2019 - 01:51
Tomorrow morning I have a macro shootout with another photographer Ronan on Instagram, he does photo workshops and is a decent photographer. Recently he started doing challenges after 1 guy said it was his fancy gear that made his shots so good,a challenge ensued and the 2 guys swapped gear and shot at the same location and posted the resulting images, a blind vote decided the victor, Ronan won, a few other challenges came, 1 ph camera challenge and another gear swap one, so far he is 3-0 up, we are meeting up in the morning for our bug macro challenge, it should be a bit of craic if nothing else. He is @ronanhdphotography on Instagram if you want to check him out, the trash talk has been some fun for the last few days, and I'm @developing_light_photography
I'll let ye know how it goes, even if I get my @ss whooped 😁😁😁
I know what i like, If not always why.

Good luck Derek, you certainly have a good eye and reflexes for pin sharp photos which I guess trumps the choice of kit.

Derek is our low-key genius on here
All the gear with no idea

Great shots as ever Derek.

How many are you each entering into your shootout?

My favourite 5 from today are images 6286, 6303, 6381, 6485 and 6454.

If I had to pick a favourite...i'd go for 6303.

Good luck

Cheers guys, lost the vote, theres no zoom option on stories so had to choose something that wasnt my first pick. Not to worry though it was great craic doing it and the banter was mighty
