We got this beautiful yellow roses last weekend that is starting to bloom, it is really beautiful and a great subject to photograph. So I decided to test my new Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G3 16 MP Micro Four-Thirds Camera and see how it does with macro. I use the Panasonic 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 Lumix G Vario MEGA OIS Zoom Micro Four Thirds Lens for Panasonic and Olympus Micro Four Thirds Cameras a Raynox DCR 250 and 1 speedlite on top fitted with a . Opteka OSG14 1/4-Inch Universal Honeycomb Speed Grid .
Photo above was shot with the Canon EOS 60D, the Tamron SP 180mm F/3.5 Macro lens, tiny Sunpak Flash and the Demb flash diffuser pro, shot at 1/250, F/7.1, ISO 100.
I don't have any schedule for my next football match, so I'm doing some macro and hunting for bugs. It's a great day [...]
I don't have any schedule for my next football match, so I'm doing some macro and hunting for bugs. It's a great day today, the sun is high up, no wind, just a perfect day to walk around and take some photos. So I grab may Tamrac 5562 Explorer 200 Camera Bag and inside are Canon EOS 60D , Tamron AF 180mm f/3.5 Macro Lens , the Sunpak RD2000C Camera Flash and Demb Flash Diffuser Pro .
We don't need to travel far to take photographs of wildlife. You can find many beautiful creatures to photograph in your sorroundings. Take for example this Grasshopper, I shot it yesterday morning on our backyard while I was having coffee. So next time you go into your backyard have your camera ready, you'll never know what you will find.
A really busy bee. Early this morning I went for a walk around our block instead of my usual 5 mile run. While passing by my neighbors garden, I saw this bee hanging on a bud and snap a couple of shots before it flew. I'm sure they won't mind. Thankfully, I got one that I can use for this post.
When I got home, I immediately imported the photos from the PEN to my catalog, the photo is fine right of camera, but, decided to try to play with the Luminance Sliders in Lightroom.
You just never know what you’ll find. This morning, instead of running I decided to just walk around, enjoy the sun, the neighborhood and have fun along with my OLYMPUS PEN. I got lucky I found this beautiful tiny frozen flower. Continue reading »

This beautiful shiny dog bane beetle is trying to climb the leaf when I found him.
Shot with the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and Canon FD 50mm F/1.8 I also use my Raynox DCR-250 for greater magnification, this allowed me to cut the minimum focus distance of the FD 50mm F/1.8 so I can move in much closer. The FD 50mm F/1.8 is not a macro lens and the minimum focus distance is 0.6m or around 23 inches. With the DCR-250 you can significantly cut this.
I'm pretty happy with this one. The flash really did the trick. It was pretty dark with all those leaves around. If not for this lighting setup it would be really hard to get this.

I don't like flys, no no! But, they are so challenging to photograph I always try see if can take a good picture of them. This one seems ok. It took me several attempts before I got this one, and everytime, I position myself and start to focus, this little bugger is going to hop to the next leaf, and to the next and to the next. When photographing insects /bugs especially those quick ones, you'll need patience and lots of them.
