Wildflower Dancers

Whoa, fantastic macro, it's as if someone shrunk me and placed me inside. The water droplets are amazing... you are very talented. Great job!

K.C. said...

What a gift you have. This is absolutely beautiful. I agree with michele. How great it would be to shrink inside of this flower! KC

Horsoon said...

Amazing shot. I could actually see the dancer!

Carver said...

Hi Michele, K.C., and Horsoon, Thanks for your kind comments.

Mar said...

Truly amazing! and oh, so beautiful!

Mar said...

Carver, I would love to know what kind of camera you are using for your wonderful shots.

Carver said...

Thanks Mar, My camera is a Canon PowerShot A610. The reason I selected that one since I couldn't afford a professional camera was it is one of the few affordable digital cameras which gives you the option of adding lenses later. I can get a converter and then add a more powerful zoom and a wide angle lens. It is particularly good for macro shots which I knew I liked to do. Take care, Carver

applause; that is a much closer macro then I have ever been able to get with my shaky hands. Do you use a tripod?

Dee said...

The two different colored pistols almost look like starfish, too, with long, skinny arms. So, it could be Starfish Dancers! : ) Wonderful shot, Carver.

Thanks so much for your comments. To answer a questions, I don't use a tripod but I get very close. I can only get the good macros when I have the camera right up to what I'm photographing. I usually set it at macro and fine (settings on my camera), I don't use any zoom which is how I can get so close without distortion. I'm not able to get the detail when I use zoom because that doesn't work as well with the macro and fine setting and when I'm that close if I use zoom to get even closer it distorts. Sometimes I practically touch what I'm photographing for the detail or I get a bigger part and crop out more. I'm also shooting it very large so if I crop out to blow up it keeps the quality.
