I Love Macro and this Cheapo Picasa

.

Just a flower. Bunga apa ye?


Just trying out my BR 2A with the 35-70 mm lens, converted to JPEG with Nikon Editor and touchup with Picasa, a free programme from Google. These are the end product.


Apa ni?

Both shots were taken during my off hours at the hospital today.


Ok juga program percuma ni

I am now at home. My off day. Just got back from our morning stroll at the beach. Here are some of the shots taken today.


A simple composition


The forgotten


Apa benda pulak ni


Huh?

I just love my newly found macro techniques and alterations that can be made. Seronok betul.

Wooitts!! Sempat menyempat lagi!

Gambar kedua walaupon nampak mcm mulut serangga cerita Alien, semua org tahu itu bunga!!

Malam ni kita makan spaghetti! Ok tak?

dith said...

ps. I suggest you ambil gambar macro botol kicap kita kat dapor. Masih banyak lagi tapi layer atas ada foreign substance. Kindly enlarge and decide whether still edible or not!!

dith said...

I bet since you started this macro mania thingy, whatever you find on patients you try to imagine in the macro level huh? WHy not try ambik gambar kurap ke, kudis ke then enlarge...sure interesting!!

dith said...

What do you mean off hours?? You only had an hour off isnt it??

Mama Sarah said...

4 consecutive comments by DITH... oh dear?!!

p/s: I hope your long serving helper is back now.

hahaha... saya seronok mengambil gambar dengan rakan sekerja (bukan doktor atau nurse tetapi pemandu dan attenden) ;)

nanti saya ambil gambar kudis apabila ada macro lens yang sesuai. kalau terlalu dekat nanti berbau dan tidak sihat.

mama sarah
pembantu kami memang ingin terus dengan kami. Cuma kami minta dia balik kampung dan ziarah mak serta saudara mara dia. Tambahan lagi ia bertujuan agar anak kami lebih berdikari dan tidak terlalu bergantung dengan orang lain. ;)

Untuk makluman tambahan, dith masih boleh berdiri tegak. ;)

Hehehe .... DITH , commenting 4 in a row seems to a new vogue ke?

Ikelah, your new 'love' is very interesting. And DITH's suggestions are hilarious. Tapi kalau KOTH take up a new hobby like this, teruklah we all nanti berebut PC yang satu tu kat rumah ...

mama sarah said...

Hah! Selalu ada addition selepas saya tinggal komen. Isykh, I have to learn to tinggal komen lambat2.

Apa benda "The forgotten" to? Don't tell me a turtle! Nooo, it can't be it. Or is it? bukan tutup botol kicap kan?

"Apa benda pulak ni" Macam jellyfish sedang menari dalam air.

macro is a very addictive drug. i am pleased there are more addict-kins around now.

coming soon next year is the ultimate macro lens- leica made with mega optical image stabilizer.

mynn said...

tramontina
phew, image stabilised macro lens? Wow, what a good idea. I hope canon & nikon would copy the idea and make their own image stabilised macro lenses.

speaking about image stabilised macro, abit weird eh ... macro shots are normally tripod mounted and I heard that a tripod interferes with image stabilisation (feedback loops or something causing vibrations etc222 betul ke huh?)

Ikelah
ambik gambar macro shots dengan nurse?? patutlah dith sampai 4 comment kat atas ...! hahaha. lepas macro lens beli ring flash pulak ikelah :) (sorry dith!!)

Ikelah said...

QOTH
actually tak lama nak process.... it doesnt take long to just adjust the exposure, levels and sharpening. KOTH will be more at home then. ;)


mama sarah
when i prepared for the last batch of pics, the coments were only from dith. i guess we upload the data at about the same time. ;)

the answer will be on the next entry today. ;)

tramontina
lama tak update dengan macro pics baru! best dan memang best. a friend dr hari had just sms me yesterday that he was glad he got the same kit and now using the 50mm in reverse. he is now in shsh alam. he is very nice and i'll introduce you to him if you are interested.

IS will be great. leica? sure mahal harganya.

mynn
all my shots were stabilised with my elbows. of course professionals use tripods. as i had mentioned earlier, my battered tripod wont help. one need a good and special low tripod for macro... hehehehe macam angle poise lamp boleh pusing-pusing. therefore an IS will do wonders for photographers like me who is lazy to set tripods. i'll just lie on my tummy, get close, focus and squeeze the shutter at least 5x for a single subject.

before the flash, i have to get a macro first but i'll rather get an external flash SB800 that can be shot from a distant, not attached to the hotshoe.

dith? dia dah tergamam and maybe akan beri hadiah lens on my next birthday. ;)

thanks guys for the comments

Boogey said...

4 comments in a row can already be considered melatah. One more and it`d be membebel. So, since all have the almost macro lens capabilities, when`s the Frim outing?

Ikelah said...

frim outing, after hari raya haji kut.....chinese new year maybe. i had apply for for leave from 27th sampai new year, tak tau lah approved or not. mereka suruh habiskan cuti. cuma 5 hari boleh bring forward.

tramontina said...

ring flash la cam CSI pakai tu.

suppose u wanna get a tripod, better a ball-head one. it won't be good for panning but more freedom for simultaneous yaw and pitch

Boogey said...

Ring flash berapa harga hah? Nampak macam best jek. Flash yang bertelinga tu kan?

mynn said...

Tengok cerita Dexter tak? Guna Nikon + Ring flash jugak -- popular dalam citer2 macam CSI nampaknya ringflash ni. apparently excellent for portraits and macro shots.

Ikelah, cuti kat msia dapat berapa hari for a junior? sini dapat 29 hari setahun (tak termasuk public holiday).

ikelah said...

28-30 days cuti masa i mula mula kerja dulu. sekarang dah bertambah lagi tak tahu lah. ini tak termasuk public holidays yang berlambak hampir 20 hari kut.

masa dulu kira burn tetapi sekarang boleh dapat replacent jika bekerja on public hols. sekarang bila kerja 5 days per week tak taulah macam mana dia kira untuk docs because docs kerja shift and nights off.

relaks la... kerja doc di malaysia agak merelakskan walaupun lebih teruk dari job lain, kecuali mereka yang dedicated dan tak curi tulang. 70% curi tulang, kalau tak banyak sikit(kecuali yang di universities, ia terbalik pulak). kalau kita rajin, meletihkan tapi puas hati, syoknya orang tak nampak tapi kita yang rasa.
