    The Weekly Close Up 21/2009

    Welcome to the Weekly Close Up, where up close and personal is how we like it.

    Lets see those wonderful close ups, let us know how you got them and if you are cropping.

    I am ready to be impressed.

    I know you are all tired of the hibiscas shots but they bloomed late, so I am trying to get my shots before a cold snap takes them out.

    E 3, 8MM FE





    Thanks for looking

    I've been trying out my new Zuiko 35mm Macro this last week or so and now I've got some pics for the Weekly Close Up thread.
    Here is a lizard i captured today amongst the trees.

    Jim,
    One of my favorite flowers, never get tired of seeing any pics of them. Reminds me of our honeymoon in Jamaica.

    Here is a closeup of my cockatiel. She is a rescue from a young woman who recieved her for Easter one year and then "grew out of her" and she somehow ended up with us (after basically being ignored for a few years) and my wife's lovebird, two parakeets and 8 finches. Her name is Jellybean, not one that we would have chosen but it came with her. She was on my shoulder, so I grabbed the camera. She moved down to about my elbow to get away from the camera but not quite a comfortable distance for the camera to focus. And I couldn't MF with her on one arm. There were better poses, particularly with her crest up, but this one is the sharpest. No crop, straight out of the camera in JPEG, only resized to 800 x 600.
    Unfortunately she had been taking food from the corner of my mouth as I was eating some potato chips previously and there is still a piece attatched to her beak, if you look closely. But then it it is kind of a candid shot and with those you get what you get.

    Both E150 - 50mm




    And I got this shot today just before leaving for work - this chick was just about learning to fly so i managed to get quite close.
    E3 - 50mm.

    Well, I'm still stuck on doing flowers. This one I used the 12-60mm out to 45mm and about 2" away from the flower. I like to play with the lighting to get a nice glow effect.

    Can I play, can I play?

    Here are a couple taken this past weekend.


    1. I used diffused flash (white film canister over pop-up flash) for this one.




    2. Went with the natural back lighting here.




    3. My son took this one of me shooting the Mantis.
