"June, 2013 Assignment – Macro"


Barrington, US
          

Please read the Rules and Objectives before you submit a photo for this Assignment.

The June Assignment is “Macro”.

This month's assignment is simple - provide wall worthy images of an extreme close-up shot of a subject, preferably a small subject (although a macro shot of a section of a larger subject will be okay). The objective is to make the size of the subject in the photograph greater than life size. Use of a macro lens is preferred, but not required.

There are no other restrictions except that your image(s) MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE, 2013. I have noticed that some have used archived photos to satisfy an assignment (i.e. photos NOT taken during the month of the assignment). Using images taken prior to June of 2013 is NOT PERMITTED and will be deleted. Please honor the rules of the assignment.

As always, I emphasize “artistic”. Strive to be different; let your artistic juices flow when composing your image. Is the image you post for this assignment one you would be willing to frame and hang on your wall?? Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the assignment, and creativity just to name a few.

Also, over the course of the month, you may post no more than four (4) images. I want you to be discriminating in the selection of images you post for this assignment – PLEASE POST ONLY YOUR BEST SHOTS!!!

Also, please:

• Be imaginative and go for the unusual shot. After all, that’s what makes this fun!!!
• Do not use a shot in your archive – the whole point of this exercise is that it is an assignment.
• Submit only artistic shots. Naturally, we want to see your very best work with regard to subject matter and composition - translation – snapshots are not permitted.
• Include shooting data, and ideally, please include your thinking behind the scene – what were you trying/hoping to capture, and did you succeed?

As discussed here, the top five images will be selected by the previous month’s winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to our new Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this assignment!

Good luck!!!

First of all I would like to congratulate Sheri Becker for winning the last assignment, her photo was superb!

The first photo is a Poppy that grows wild here in southern AZ. They are about finished now however this morning I noticed a few were still in full bloom so I decided to capture a few close-ups with the low sun angle.


Thanks for looking, Dale

24-70mm f/2.8

Second photo is more of the flower and plant. Same settings as the first photo except 1/15 sec at f/22.

Here are two more for the assignment. Closeup of very small machines my father made from scratch back in the late 60's and early 70's. I took the photos on the 2nd of June for other reasons but I still like them enough to post them here. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking,

Hi, this is a little different than what I usually post for my water drop photos, it's a lit candle underneath an array of water drops. I think it's kind of unique...enjoy

Kathy...very beautiful -- my favourite colour, firey orange. You perfected the textures of the petals very well.

#30. "RE: Water and Bubbles"
In response to Reply # 0

Hot weather and boredom, led me to experiment with bubbles and water drops. I do not have any electronic gizmos to trigger flash or camera. I used a plastic burette tube to drop the water and my finger on the shutter button.

Added food coloring and a few drops of glycerine to the water that was falling. Bubble mixture is just the stuff you buy for kids to blow bubbles.

I wanted to see if the water drop would pass through the bubble without bursting it. To my amazement it did.

D800 105mm micro VR version SB 900 and SB 600 both off camera.
ISO 250 f/14 1/250 Manual , Manual focus .
