our first tries on macro

After quite a time without any posts due to some stress in school we are back with the first results of our journey into the world of macro photography.

Even though we do not own an expensive, professionel macro lens, we still think that the results we got from our standard 18-250mm zoom lens are quite impressive.

In the future we will upload content more frequently again, so stay tuned.
As always we would be very happy to get some feedback from you, especially concerning macro photography.

the last days were quite busy but we found time to organize a little shooting outdoors. During the post production we recognized that his eyes are realy amazing, so we decided to draw the viewers attention onto them. To do so we first made the picture black and white but held the eyes blue to make them more eyecatching.

We went outside for a photoshoot at night and tried to do some cool stuff with burning steel wool. We formed little balls out of it and spinned them around attached on a wire. Using a slow shutter speed (8s) and high aperture of f22 we were able to shoot at ISO 100.

Because of these camera settings the steel wool created some cool sparks flying around.

In the post processing we simply adjusted the contrast and brightness and sharpened the picture slightly to emphasize the sparks.

In the end this picture shows that you don’t necesserelily need high budget equipment and tons of gear to get awesome results. Sometimes just a camera, a lens and a litttle bit of creativity is just fine to get nice pictures!
