Macro images from around the yard

May 27, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Without sporting events and a number of other people-oriented gatherings to shoot, I dug out some handy dandy extension tubes I bought a number of years ago and thought what better way to spend some quarantine time than to go out into the yard with my 5-year-old son to shoot some macro? He's been intrigued by bugs so this seemed to be a great activity to get him up close to see these little critters in their environment. A least he would shout with excitement as we looked at each shot on the camera display. I was using a Nikon D500, manual focus, manual mode, handheld, at around 1/1250 @ f/11-13, and 1600 ISO. Attached to the body was a 36mm extension tube and my amazing Nikon 50mm F/1.4G. I did this without a strobe in full sun because I wanted to see how my new camera held up at the higher ISO. The last time I did any macro shots I was using my D300 and I could not get the f-stop small enough without a strobe to have a decent depth of field. I think this setting gave me just enough to get nearly an entire bee in sharp focus.
