Just got the macro kit---wow! posted by John-Morgan May 17, 2011 04:01PM reply | quote

Today, I received the pair of macro lenses to go with my composer. My initial take is amazement at the quality of the macros produced. I've attached some pics. Shooting at +10 macro proved difficult since there was quite a bit of wind. With this optic, even the slightest breeze is like trying to shoot through a hurricane. I ended up using "foot focus"--moving my body in and out--to try to nail these. +4 was much easier. Not only is the Lensbaby blur a wonderful part of these shots, but the saturation and crispness are remarkable. Tried stacking both macro lenses, but this was a disaster with the breeze. Everything was a horrible blur.

By way of background, these were all shot at f/5.6 on an overcast day using neutral processing settings. These are basically SOOC. Unfortunately, they've all been downsized compared to original to get under 2mb/photo cap at Lensbaby.

Would love to get feedback from others though. What's good and what could be better about these shots?

Thanks!

John

Nice shots.

TRYING IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS FAILURE.

Beautiful macro shots, especially the daisy. I love the sharp focus on the forefront daisy with the echoing blur of the others in the background. I think you've gotten the knack of it! Flowers + lensbaby + macro = awesome shots!
