17/365 – Macro D3 – Magnolia Bud

OK Today I limited myself to only one shutter press to ensure I take more care of what is in the shot – Probably could have done better, but hey ho. Settings for image: 65mm, F16, 1/125 ISO 320 (with 10x macro filter on) . And of course edited to BW.

16/365 – Macro Day 2 -Flowers

Today I limited myself to three frames only (literally, 3 shutter presses only) and these are the results (sitting on the carpark at work in high heels is NOT the best way to get a decent composition!). Taken using a macro filter all 3 images on the following settings: F16, Shutter 1/128,Β 65mm with 10X filter attached and ISO 800 (probably could have gone lower – Lesson Learnt)

Blue Flower 1

Actually the 2nd frame taken but my favourite
