    Garden macro photos

    I went into the garden this afternoon to get some macro pictures with my Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens and Pentax K-5 DSLR. I’ve been using the K5 quite a bit over the last few weeks instead of my Nex 6, simply because I’m going to take it on holiday in a few weeks along with a couple of Pentax film cameras. When I put the pictures through post processing in Lightroom I was struck by how clean and well...

    Butterflies and other insects

    It’s been a hot day here today and I’ve been out with my macro lens trying to get some interesting insect pictures. Although it is hot, almost as soon as I got to Priors wood (where I usually go to get insect pictures) the sun went in and the light levels dropped quite a lot. Although that didn’t make it in anyway impossible to take pictures, it meant about 3 stops less light, so most of these were taken at...

    Nex 6 Macro photographs

    Bury my head

    I went out with my Tamron 90 mm Lens again today to try to get some Butterfly pictures. The weather forecast had suggested that it was going to be warm and sunny today, but in the end it was quite cold and windy so I didn’t find any butterflies at all. I did find this chap however nestling under a buttercup leaf, trying to keep warm perhaps ? Tamron 90mm F/2.8 Pentax K-5 f/4.0 1/500 iso320

    Macro Photography, Ladybird

    Macro Photography, Ladybird I took this image with a Tamron 90mm 1:1 macro lens and I count it as one of my favourite images from the pictures I’ve taken. I took this picture in Priors wood in the North part of Stevenage in June 2012. I’d actually gone to that part of Stevenage to take butterfly pictures because the year before I’d visited and found a butterfly photographers paradise with hundreds of butterflies of many different species everywhere. On this...
