Pre Christmas Macro Flowers and Bees…

by on Dec.28, 2010, under Life, Photography

My eldest daughter and I went for a bit of a walk to photograph some flowers in the streets in our suburb that we’d spied when driving past – we took the camera with the Tamron 90mm 1:1 macro plus the tripod and my larger 5 in 1 reflector.

As it turns out the flowers I’d planned to photograph didn’t turn out so well but we did manage to capture these nearby…

NIKON D90 + 90.0 mm f/2.8 @ 90 mm, 1/320 sec at f / 8, ISO 200

NIKON D90 + 90.0 mm f/2.8 @ 90 mm, 1/160 sec at f / 9, ISO 200

In the following I’ve traded off depth of field (a wider aperture) for a faster shutter speed in an attempt to freeze the bee.
