Some Macro at Cinta Alam

During the weekend trip I had the chance to do a little bit of macro, I did wonder into the trees but there were just too many mosquitoes…and damn they were hungry.

I had a little look around the compound but there weren’t many subjects and it was super hot..I was of course using the cangih milk bottle diffuser!

The kitchen towel at the front was torn though so it was a little bit harsh, I might try two layers next time for extra out of practise too. Anyway here’s what I managed to come up with.

    Ranga: Just practice, patience and getting the right subject.

    kevin: Thanks 🙂 Near enough la! Only one letter difference..

    Dabido: Yah get out there and find some bugs.

    TZ & katsmew: Thanks!

    James: Must be my smell knocks em out..hahaha

    Simon Seow: Thanks!

    eyeris: Hahaha, I think all the Macros have closed down, most seem to have been taken over by Tesco.

    moons: Practice makes perfect!

    grace: Thanks!

    sarah: Practice a lot and study a lot, photography is all about light – so learning how to use light is one of the most important aspects. And of course you must know your camera and the technical settings (Aperture/Shutter Speed/ISO/WB) and relations inside out.
