What’s the real difference between the Standard post format and the Image post format? Same number of images and same result.
I’m getting better with the Lensbaby Composer and I’m enjoying using it for macro photography. My biggest challenge has been focusing. With macro one has to be very steady when hand-held. A tripod helps but it’s not easy to place a tripod for the shot.
All images were shot handheld on my Nikon D5100 in manual mode. My Sekonic light-meter helped get the shutter readings for the chosen lens aperture. I used an aperture of f/5.6 which allowed me must enough depth-of-field to get the subject in focus.
The Lensbaby has no electronics to signal the DX body and the aperture is fixed with little circles. This is a total manual setup.
This little green guy was hopping around in grassy area behind my home. He stopped his hopping to pose for me. I was happy for that. It can be hard to focus when depth of field is very limited. Move your setup even just a few mm and the entire image is out of focus.
The spider built a web between the stalk of one of my palms and the side of the house. Unlike the grasshopper it didn’t like posing and the web moved gently in the wind. I had to take about twenty shots to get these two.
I’m not sure what this flower is. Considering how barren the dog days of summer are I was happy for the bit of color.
