Macros with non-macro lenses

So these two shots are not perfect macro captures but I had my Canon 135L on, and saw this HUGE bee.  So I just had to try…  Which means I just had to share… Remember not to let your equipment limit what you can shoot.

Here is the bee gathering nectar.

And my one second opportunity as the bee backed out of the flower. I wish the wings were in focus too but I was shooting portraits at f2, and did not even have time to stop down a bit.

Ok so these next ones are maybe not quite macros either – but these were shot with a LensBaby Composer. I used the 4.0 aperture disk.  ISO100 – speed varied on each shot. In manual mode but I just kept adjusting since aperture stays steady. Kids were at camp so nature was my subject…

The bees sure are happy at this time of the year…

And these were made possible because of morning dew and some spiders working hard.

    It’s all about not having to work hard to get quality results. This is my fourth purchase from MCP Actions and I must say, I was a bit hesitant to pay so much for these templates. But, I’m so glad I did! It’s really all about an efficient workflow and getting blog posts up that capture the essence of the event. These templates work like a charm and have the added bonus of a nice web sharpening action that works perfectly (and is adjustable). I’m even using this Blog It Board action to create nice side-by-side portrait views on my main portfolio pages. So many wedding shots are taken with a portrait orientation and they just don’t fill the screen as you would want. I open the action, drag in my photos, change the dimensions of the view boxes as needed, apply a final sharpening, flatten the image, and as a last step drag my logo and position where best. What a great product! Only now I want Set 1…should have sprung for the complete package! (Posted on 12/5/11)

Today I haven’t gotten anything else done because all I want to do is play with these boards! LOLAll I can say is, just like everything else I’ve ever purchased from MCP Actions, these blog-it boards ROCK. Best products and best customer service at MCP Actions. Period. (Posted on 7/14/10)

    I can not express how much time they save me. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Jodi’s blog it actions. I can not express how much time they save me. I used to spend hours trying to make my own collage boards. Then along came my miracle. It saves me probably 3-5 hours every blog post.If you don’t have them”_run don’t walk and get them. It sounds silly, but they’ve changed my life! Anything that makes thing faster to get your clients images viewed sooner is worth the price.Plus for those of you who might not be the wiz on Photoshop she gives you tutorials for FREE! I can’t say enough good things! (Posted on 7/14/10)

    These actions have revolutionized the way I present my images on the web! These actions have revolutionized the way I present my images on the web! Before I got them, I had to watermark each image, resize it, upload it, and try to organize them all in some way that was visually pleasing.Now I simply press a button, select my images, slap on a single watermark, and voila! Instant web-size collage perfect for sharing on my blog, on Facebook, or through email. I LOVE THEM! (Posted on 7/14/10)

    Saves so much time! I am in LOVE with these Blog It Boards! They make it sooooo fast and easy to pull your favorite pics or client sneak preview into a board! It’s so easy to pull the pictures in and get everything sized how you want it. The images of each board that come with the actions are so handy – I have the sheet printed and taped to my desk, so when I’m ready to get blogging, I just scan the list to see which one fits the number of images and the style I want, and then run it!I am looking forward to buying Blog It Boards – Set 1 also! I highly recommend these! Thanks Jodi! (Posted on 7/14/10)
