Happy Good Friday, everyone! Hope you’re enjoying a day off as well; my Friday has been very quiet and lazy so far – reading, drinking lots of coffee and having bits of chocolate Easter egg for breakfast.
I took out my macro lenses yesterday to play around with, one result of which you can see above. By the time I got to the market yesterday all they had left were measly – albeit cheap – little bouquets, so I decided it was better than nothing.
I chose this gerbera with already slightly browning petals as my photo subject and then applied tons of different presets to the results. This one was one of my favourites – not the original colour (which is a very pale pink) but still not too unnatural.
It was really good fun using the macro lenses again; one little minus, though, was that with the 60 macro that can no longer autofocus I find it very hard to get sharp, in-focus pics. I mostly have to use the tripod for that. I was actually considering buying a newer model of the same lens but have been thinking it’s quite decadent to replace it just because I find it difficult to get the manual focus right.
What do you think? Would you invest?
Have a good weekend!
