Photo by: Jeremy A.A. Knight

Camera: Canon EOS 40D

Lens: 100mm

ISO: 100

Although Jeremy employed a wide open aperture causing a great deal of the flower to be out of focus, it adds to the photo as the tip of the flower (the focus point) is in perfect focus.

Stephan’s Description:

Dortmund, Germany. Handheld, no flash. There is not very much more to say about this picture. It was a nice day in the park and I thought it was a good opportunity to take some macros outdoor.

December 2016, Week 2:

TYC Featured Macro Photo

Photo by: Izak van Heerden

Camera: Canon EOS 7D

Lens: 100 mm Canon Macro

ISO: 100
F/stop: f/13
Shutter: 1/200 sec

Izak’s Description:

Was never happy with the magnification I got from a normal 100 mm macro lens. Started experimenting with an extension tube and was able to get in real close to this dragonfly. Photo was taken with a ring flash with a plastic coke bottle bottom cutout over the ring of the flash to help with light diffusion.
