Recent Photos

I thought it’s about time I mentioned the photos I have been taking recently

Some are random (as seen below)

I also snapped a close-up of some ants and other insects (aphids?)) eating at the stem of my sunflower. I was quite surprised at the detail I got, though admittedly it was with my ef-s 60mm macro lens

I also got a nice shot of a bee while on a walk one lunchtime at work

And then there is my whole set of photos from Hinton Ampner, which I realised I didn’t have the old ones from last year up, so theres a fair few in there including a whole pile trying to catch a bee flying. (click on the photo below to see the whole set)

And I recently took photos of the Hursley Model Railway (again click on the image below to see the whole set). Some of these were done with an off-camera flash with a coloured gel, which produced some interesting effects, though not very life-like.

    Ant – take a look at http://www.mytinygarden.com/ which contains the collection of insect macros taken by a graphic designer IBMer guy called Jay, he’s really *very* good!

    You are right – They are really fantastic. I would love to know what equipment he used, as my macro photos are nowhere near as good as that…
