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.

we took this shot yesterday. It was quite rainy so we did some indoor photography.

We dripped some water into a bowl and kept it with a long exposure (0.8s). We filled in a flash manually with a blue diffusor mounted so that we got the effect we desired. The aperture was fully closed to make the long exposure time possible.

In the end we edited the shot slightly by blurring out the background and corrected the colors a bit.

Please feel free to comment, like and share.

Suggestions for improvements are always welcome!

Thank you!

as we walked through the fields we saw this old fancy barbed wire fence. We liked the nice Bokeh created by our 50mm lens.

Afterwards we put a nice black and white filter over it to emphasize it’s old fashioned style.

We would be pleased if you like our work and if you would click on the follow button!

We always would like if you comment our work and say what we could improve.

Thank you!

when we took a little walk in the fields we saw this tree merging so nicely with the sun going down.

We took several shots with different shutter speeds and composed them in the end to create this nice HDR effect.

We hope that you enjoy our photo and would be pleased about comments and proposal to improve our work!

On our way back home we found a place with a nice lighting so we decided to take a quick shot. We had to use a reflector to light up the other side of the face an that actually reflects in the sunglasses.

By the way this is one member of the 32bephoto team.

We took this picture during a shoot in the local forest. We decided to take an hdr to make the picture a little bit diffrent and more eye-catching. In the post-processing we used again a black and white filter, but used some layers to darken the scene.

We went to the local forest to do some photography and took this picture of a flower. The wide apperture created a very nice depth of field and the black and white filter really drives the viewers attention onto the flower. This photo is a good example for a picture which seems to be unintresting at the start, but with the right post-processing you can achieve the impression you want.

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!
