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.

hurry

child

at a saturday afternoon we decided to do some street photography in Maastricht in the Netherlands. It was very rainy and quite wet outside so everybody was in a little hurry.

We found this father with his little daugther meandering around.

In the post production we just kept the girl colored to catch the eyes on her.

This pictures has been taken with our Canon EOS 600D at ISO 100, 1/500s, f2.5 with our 50mm lens.

Please feel free to comment, like and share.

Suggestions for improvements are always welcome!

Thank you!

we organized a shooting with a friend whose hobby is biking.

When he practiced his turns we were able to take our shots. This one in particular was taken at ISO 100 with a shutter speed of 1/2000 s and an aperture of f4.5.

In the post production we lightened up the bike but kept the background dark so that the bike attracts the views on the bike!

We hope that you enjoy our work. Feel free to comment, share & like.

Thank you!

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!
