Now this is a flower beetle I think… Well I’ve tried to find some more info on them and have found out nothing at all! Well I know they eat fruit as you can see from the photo. But If anyone knows about these mysterious beetles; please enlighten me! 😀
I really do love this picture. I took this a couple months ago at a nature reserve in the UK and initially didn’t upload it, due to a piece of grass going straight through diagonally left of the shot. Every time I’ve looked at the photo I kept saying to myself that I love this shot so much but the grass just ruins it! Today I just realised that I could crop the photo so that all you would see is the insect itself. Took me that long to figure out that solution, but anyway its finally here!
This is my first photo of a Dragon Fly taken with the Nikon D3200. And I know your thinking “Another macro?” yes indeed. Ive been focusing a lot on macro photography lately, theres always bugs out and about for me to take photos of. Now its starting to become winter ill have no choice but to move onto doing other types of photography.
Other than that I had a go at making stop motion videos with lego mini figures. I don’t know how you stop motion guys do it! Its so long winded just to make the figurine look like he’s walking. But I must say the videos you make are amazing and so creative.
I start college on the 9th (I’ll be doing an AAT Accountancy Course) which means ill be working less and earning less. I currently work at a local convenience store which in fact i love doing. But anyway my hours are going to be way less as I’ll be at college so… Ive decided to sell digital downloads of my photos for a small price. For only £0.50 Im selling my photos full size in which you’ll be able to use as your desktop wallpaper or you can print them up to size A0 without loosing a hint detail! Tiff files can be provided if needed.
Lately I’ve been taking a ton macro shots. Its amazing how compatible lenses can be with all cameras. I received an old macro lens which is built to fit a Contax camera (I have a Nikon) And yeah I was gutted to find that it wouldn’t fit a Nikon camera but i thought somehow there must be a way that I could miraculously fit it on. Anyway i done a little research and found out you can buy these mount to mount converters which cost about £12/$18. I bought one and have never complained since I’ve had it. Yeah it sure does have its knock backs such as you can’t use auto focus, but with macro that isn’t a problem anyway.
I recently purchased some extension tubes which are an amazing accessory to add to your camera bag if you don’t own a macro lens. they basically create a space between your camera body and lens which enables your camera to focus closer. 😀 as you can see from this shot you can definitely get pretty close!
