27/366 Petal focus

Today’s macro shot. A difficult flower to capture as the center and stems are so tiny. After several efforts I decided to focus on the petal instead… And I should have dusted off some dirt I see.. Still hope you like it 🙂

  1. Beautiful shot Inga! little question: what kind of lens you use? You have the Canon Eos 60D as well as I recall it correctly? I still have to shoot everything with my 18-135… want to buy myself a new lens very soon 🙂

    1. thanks, Joanna. I have the Sigma 17-70 mm f/2,8-4,5 with macro. The kit lens that came with my camera was the 18-55 mm. I also have the 50 mm f/1,8. I want a bigger zoom lens (telezoom) a better macro lens and the 50 mm f/,4 or a 30 mm standard lense – I could spent much money on photo gear if I could afford it.. 😉

      1. Mitt siste kjøp var en 50mm 1.4 men ikke fått testet sånn helt ut ennå. Var liksom litt julegave til meg selv, men ennå som sagt ikke tatt de mange bildene med det. For min del blir det så en velger en litt vidvinkel med zoom når en drar rundt på tur, ellers… varierer en jo bitte litt. Skulle hatt en litt mer lyssterkt allround objektiv jeg, noen anbefalinger??

      2. I know exactly what you mean! I had the 18-135 mm with my camera…now I want a 70-300 mm and a good macro-lens… Still don’t know which one I should buy first! I actually find a very cheap internshop for all lenses and cameras I only don’t know if it’s a good and reliable one… have to check out first

  2. Macro har liksom ikke helt vært min greie ennå, men nabo`n min sier vel noe annet , lei av rumpa mi i været som han er sikkert, he he men ikke macro-objektiv det er vel det jeg mener 🙂 en dag håper en vel å få råd tild et også, kjekt da å se detaljene slik som i denne vakre blomsten, det ER jo fasinerende.

    God helg til deg Inga, håper du er i form og ved godt mot selv om du vokser og vokser.

    Anneklem.

    1. takk, Anne. Formen er ganske så bra forholdene tatt i betraktning. Jeg elsker macro-fotografering, men skulle jeg også øvd meg mer med telezoom og slik. Et lyssterkt allroundobjektiv har jeg ikke tips om i farten annet enn min Sigma som jeg kjøpte til det forrige kameraet. 17-70 mm som jeg nevnte lenger opp. Den har 2,8 på videste vinkel og det er jo ganske bra. Det har god macrofunksjon på hele spekteret også. så jeg liker det veldig godt. Det koster også kun i underkant av 3000 – noe som jo ikke er så ille.

  3. Hi Inga.. Love the photo.. Quick question are you pleased with your Sigma 17-70 mm f/2,8-4,5 with macro? I currently am very very happy with the Sigma 1.4 lens and I am considering buying another lens from them but I am curious is the 17-70 a good lens. I mean is it leaps better than the kit lens that you currently own??

    1. Thanks again for all your comments and likes today. 🙂 I am very pleased with my 17-70 mm. It has good macro function covering all the range of the lens, and I find it better than the kit lens. I never use the kit lens. I guess it also has to do with it covering a larger range. I also think that the newer version is better than the one I own. Sigma is great because it usually is a bit less expensive than the Canon lenses. I am looking out for an even better macro lens though. But I have to save some money first. 🙂
