North Head Macro…

by on Jul.03, 2012, under Life, Photography

After our less than stellar sunrise at North Head we headed into the bushland there on the cliffs looking for macro and details.

Unfortunately I hadn’t brought either my new LED macro ring light nor my flash and macro diffuser so I was somewhat limited on the lighting front for macro work. I opted to take some longer exposures on a tripod in the hopes of getting something half decent of some flowers – which wasn’t easy in the windy conditions on the coast – trying to time a slow shutter inbetween wind gusts was like toying with frustration 🙂

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Nothing much to write home about but here are a couple which turned out ok…

NIKON D7000 + 90.0 mm f/2.8 @ 90 mm, 1/20 sec at f/8, ISO 100


NIKON D7000 + 90.0 mm f/2.8 @ 90 mm, 1/25 sec at f/11, ISO 100

Not a macro but it was a close focus shot with the ultrawide of some interesting textures covering the ground

NIKON D7000 + 8.0-16.0 mm f/4.5-5.6 @ 8 mm, 1/6 sec at f/9, ISO 100
