    What's the picture style setting?

    Are you using MF or AF lens?

    Ok. I see. Its on MF.
    You should be able to adjust your diopter on the OVF to get better correlation between focus on OVF and sensor.
    Anyway, for LV AF, it should be very accurate, maybe there is too much camera shake from the way the camera is held in LV (ie. camera away from body)

    BTW, with a manual lens without A-mode, it should be used in Av mode.
    You adjust the aperture via aperture ring, press the green button to meter. The camera then gives the shutter speed.

    Shot this Pacific Reef Egret at high shutter speed (1/1000 sec) from a recent holiday trip.

    shot with voigtlander macro and flash lights. A very sharp lens that brought out out the messy foreground and dirt.

    shadows seems quite harsh.Did u use on board flash light or was it the noon sun?

    Quite a lot of white spots.. work on diffusing the shadows and soften the lighting.

    the composition for #2-5 looks quite similar. its ultimately a matter of preference but it just makes them look like a series of "mug-shots", or something u find in a secondary school science textbook.

    i'm guilty of some of the same thing sometimes cos its easier to take macro shots of insects from a certain perspective but it just makes for boring macro at the end of the day.

    for macro, i find that the biggest challenge is composition and lighting. its easy enough to get a macro lens and / or a raynox to magnify, but getting it "right" so that its more than mere documentary macro is the true test of one's creativity.

    something i found recently that made me re-think how to approach macro
    WonderLand - Aimishboy Photography

    the photographer (Nadav Bagim) had clarified in interviews that these pics are not "photoshopped". basic adjustments were done to the RAW but they're not composites. the nice BG was actually achieved with common household articles and creative use of lighting.

    Lower Seletar Jetty #1 (Start of the New Year)
    K5; Sigma 10-20


    I had initially planned to go down to the Lwr Seletar Dam area to catch the sunrise for the start of the year. When I got there, I found that the tide was not low as I had thought it was.
    So I went over to the reservoir park instead.
    Big mistake...
    The revelers had made a mess of themselves as well as the place
    Stragglers from last night's celebrations as well as rubbish were everywhere.
    So much for a calm, easy shoot, I had to capture something for the 1st day of the year.
    Got clear of the rubbish and people as best I could and moved away some.

    HI all,


    otc- picture was taken with a pentax 540 external falsh fitted with a flashbender to bounce the light (not a wise choice as the light creates white shot) will look for the char kway tiao plate to diffuse light. but slight problem i really cannot imagine how to fit the plate ?? any picture ?? i tried google but no picture of the plate..

    detritus - those picture in link was wonderful, currently i having my focus on getting the focus right and that take up alont of my effort and hand strength(haha). normally those crittter will disaappear quite fast when i trying to take photo of them . clumsy hand and leg of mine.. but those mantis was really something .. haha

    yesterday tried again to take some photo with a box as diffuser.

    this is the setup i used yesterday


    some of the photo taken yesterday with the setup above

    these are the photo same batch with above but the shadow is there..
    condition and setup was same but not sure on the power of the flash..
    sometime the surrounding too dark increase power sometime to bright will reduce the power
    mostly 1/8 to 1/16 seldom 1/4
    hope to get more insight and mayb if chance can join the shifu to see how it is done..hehe

    The last shot on the spider is not too bad, need a little sharper. As for the diffusers, try to google orionmystery, or kurt on different ways and types and different angles to diffuse the light. For me, I am still experimenting....


    IMGP0274-002 by luctomar, on Flickr

    The above shot was cropped 20 % off and some adjustment to colors done. single flash light with diffusers.

    believe me: that's the easy part i'll leave u to discover the joy of it.

    marcus's (otc) idea is simple. u cut a hole in the plate and put it through your lens. with the samsung d-xenon, u place it near the front lens element. the idea is to place the light source as close to the subject as possible so minimise shadows, and to diffuse it so u get soft lighting and minimise hot-spots.
