So I organised a trip to the butterfly park with Shutter Asia as I wanted to test out my refined skills in Macro photography plus my new Raynox DCR-250 closeup filter and my botol susu flash diffuser.
I have to say it was a success! I’m extremely happy with the pictures, probably the first macro set that I really like – I tried to concentrate more on composition and taking attractive pictures rather than just snapping away and taking documentary pics or trying to get as close as possible.
You can see the pics I took last time here:
That was my first Macro outing back in December 2006.
I’ll post some pics of the homemade diffuser up now I have a new compact camera – more about that later too
Anyway on to the pics!
My favourite shot of the day – Up close and personal.
My second favourite – Feeding time
Yellow & Black Butterfly
Burst of Colour
Dragonfly on Pink
Still – it was feeding time so catching one of these not moving was quite hard!
Orange on Orange
You can view the full set on Flickr here:
Do let me know what you think, have I improved? And of course, which is your favourite!
These are uncropped full frame pictures! You can see the large versions in Flickr.
