Hard drive platters after being knifed while spinning uncovered. Hard drive was in a kitchen sink with the speedlight in various angles creating the different tones.

@ kaer, those are some cool looking textures. good work.


I was practicing handheld bug chasing. I really wish I had a close up flash system so I could open up my aperture more and get higher shutter speeds. I hate using a tripod for bug photos it's too restricting.

Some really nice images in this thread. I'll throw in a few for consideration...





This last one really wasn't a macro, but a telephoto shot. I was out towards the river shooting birds, when I came across this fellow on the side of the road. I was ready to head in but decided to do a little experiment. I shot this at a distance of about 10 feet with a 400 5.6L and an alternating stack that included a 1.4X, 2.0X, 12mm, and 25mm extension tubes. I thought it came out okay, all things considered.

I took a pic of the setup too...

I wouldnt really call it a "macro lens" but this I took with my M42 Carl Zeiss 50mm f2.8 with a Canon M42-FD converter and attached a Makinon 2x extension tube



This one was with my Tefnon 80-200mm zoom & macro lens, didnt get too close though as it was a test shot

daisies always look good especially when they are isolated. Working on my handheld bug chasing during a visit to my grandparents. They have a beautiful garden with tons of flowers all over the place. I even saw something I've never seen before

Unfortunately this is not the clearest shot. This little sucker moved so fast and was always on the go. It was hard as crap to focus in on him.

This little guy is like "Whatcha looking at?"

This one was at rest, so it was easy to compose and get a sharp shot.

Love the 2nd and 4th ones

Heres one I took about 10mins ago in my back garden, if only there was a bug or bee sitting on it!
