Noce shot - I haven't seen any in a long time...and very hard to shoot
as they don't stay still - always jutting out of frame, behind the

Yeah, that's exactly what he was doing. I had to put my hand on the
other side of the stem to get him to come around.


Oh, also, that's not a he, it's a female. The tits are a dead
giveaway...

So with that in mind I took these pics this morning.

Nothing worse than flash used for macro-photography to destroy the
image.


Exactly how would you suggest one shoot macro...of moving subjects...in poor
lighting...preserving DOF with tiny apertures...WITHOUT using flash?? Go
ahead....share your infinite wisdom.

If they were dead then I wouldn't have needed the flash.
Without flash you are talking about long exposure times. Not such a
good idea when shooting handheld and your subject is on a leaf.


That's what photography talent is for.

Try it sometime.


Gee, what a shock!

Nothing worse than flash used for macro-photography to destroy the
image. They might as well have been taken in a staged lab setting
with dead specimens.

Pitiful photography. Dreadful to say the least.

finally! Something with a reasonable size for a good
evaluation! Thought you were stuck in the 600x400
itty bity time warp...

so, what happened to the feather detail under the eye,
at the base of the beak? Can you rescan so they look
as detailed as the other feathers at the edge of the
background? you know, the ones that look "in focus"
and detailed even though the whole bird is in focus?

Ooops sorry: you can't... Nearly forgot Canon's in-camera
processing smears up fine detail it finds away from edges,
thinking it's noise...

;-)

Is any of your stuff posted, "Baum"? (Or does it all mysteriously
vanish after 7 days? (O

FWIW, I've been posting some of mine, even tho' I don't usually do
macro - here's one, flawed as it is:
http://www.marktphoto.com/grasshopper.jpg
(no flash, overcast windy day, insufficient d-o-f, slightly
oversharpened..)

So how about you bravely show us *your* talents, especially given that
on another thread you said "Everyone that's seen my photography
wonders why I don't sell coffee-table books or enter them in galleries
or contact Nat. Geo...."
Oh... but then you said "But when I saw what kinds of undeserving
useless cretins were able to enjoy my photography just by handing me
their ill-gotten money I decided the best thing to do was take all of
it off the market and never reveal anything new to the general public
ever again."

Maybe you should go into comedy - you're hilarious and you don't even
realise it!

Regarding Bret's shots, I don't see much evidence of 'damage' from
harsh flash light, and I think they are very good.
