I love the beautiful macro photos. effect or objective fixed?
The macro images are all done in camera using a 50mm f/1.4 prime lens shot close-focused and wide open, a short extension ring (10mm), and sometimes a close-up lens filter (depends on how shallow I want the depth-of-field to be). No tricks or effects.
oh sorry I did not read the description … I was distracted by the pictures 😄
No worries. 🙂
Oh I love bluebells. We have several wooded areas nearby and to see the floor of these literally covered in bluebells is a rare sight indeed. Hoping to get some photos to publish when they do. Nice photo, thank you.
Thank you for sharing! Let us know when you have some bluebell pix to share, as we’d love to see them.
No worries and never fear I will be publishing any decent shots I get for sure.
Yea..and what’s more: they are blue indeed, not always an easy colour to get ‘right’. Your’s look different from the UK ones. I shall try and take a shot or two of them..flowers not being my speciality at all…I love them though.
Cool — we’d love to see them!
..if they can get past the snow. They are beautiful
Patience, dear woman. 🙂 They’ll get here. This snow will likely be gone by tomorrow, then the heat will come back.
That is funny.
Well, for the past two years, whenever I had an appointment that cannot be rescheduled, there is just enough to snow-fall to irritate me. Not too much for everything to get cancelled, but just enough to snarl the traffic so that a fifteen minutes drive would take nearly an hour and then of there is some shoveling, just enough to drive me nuts. Today I had one such appointment.
Hence the mood.
It is such a beautiful picture though.
Beautiful blue!! Love the lighting and dof.
Thank you kindly!
A gorgeous shot Mitch!
Really lovely! It makes it look very gentle..
Most of the flowers you shoot are the same here as there. But I haven’t got any Virginia Bluebells. Thank you Mitch. They are great.
Oh how I miss the Virginia Bluebells that are so beautiful in the spring in the Midwest.
