More on Macro

.
I need to answer mama sarah's questions. Maybe she will rush to the online shopping and get mynn a reverse ring or some extension tubes to be used with the 50mm prime.

The forgotten daun mempelam kering di halaman rumah


I am still in macro mode/mood. After viewing the second and third photo, a colleague asked me, "Bila pergi scuba?". I laughed and answered.

"Tumbuhan di halaman rumah je."

Apa benda pulak ni=Bunga 'pokok pagar', hedge at our house

Huh=Bunga rumput liar di halaman rumah


The art work was simple, i just darkened them with levels(nak kata artwork pun segan sebab simple sangat...hehehe).

Another weed at our lawn


Still from our lawn

Lawn kami penuh dengan rumpai nampaknya
.
Lagi satu dari halaman
.
For the last 4 images, I use Nikon Editor to convert from RAW to JPEGwith contrast, exposure and sharpening adjustment.

The images are a bit blur because of 3 reasons;

1. No macro lens, just a reverse ring - limited budget
2. Hand held - I dont have any tripod, loaned to momad
3. Breeze - our lawn is a bit windy, breeze from South China Sea.

I thank God for giving me a pair of steady hands and guide me with newly found techniques to minize hand shake.

Yes, this shows how 'weedy' our lawn is ! Quoting uncle Bob's famous line: Tara duk sajje, gi ler menebas lalang tuh!

-Lament of a housewife cum doctor cum gardener....sat lagi cum carpenter!

All this while I thought you already have Picasa. I kind of prefer Picasa for the basic editorial. It is straightforward and easy to use. there are just too many buttons in Photoshop/GIMP. Picasa sesuai utk saya yg cuma ada pengetahuan yg basic.

With regards to the reverse ring for 50mm prime lens. Good idea if it really does the wonder of macro. and esp if it is really cheap.

However, I do believe apa yang Min ada dah cukup buat sementara waktu. Explore lah dgn apa yg ada dulu. Betul tak DITH?

i knew and had tried picasa before but just placed it in one corner because the availability of adobe photoshop. at my working place, i have no adobe and have to opt for picasa. lots of limitation with its ez n simple approach but i have no choice. ;)

reverse ring for nikon RM80, i dont know about canon. saya pun setuju mynn dah cukup dengan apa yang ada buat sementara ini. ;)

i saja je sebab teruja dengan BR2A yang pada mulanya menghampakan saya kerana tak pandai guna, but now i m glad i have it.

Mama Sarah said...

sujud syukur dengan kenyataan ikelah.

mynn said...

ikelah, try ambik gambar binatang pulak e.g. spider ke :D

mynn said...

(sure sarah suka nak tengok spider besar2)

ikelah said...

mynn
petang semalam dah ambil gambar kupu-kupu and semut besar. spider tak jumpa lagi. semut agak susah sebab ia sibuk nak berjalan dan tersangatlah aktif.

mama sarah
saya sama juga bersyukur dan masih dalam ketenangan tetapi tiba-tiba terkejut apabila melihat mynn unbox lagi satu bungkusan. terharu pula jadinya.

Mama Sarah said...

saya turut beristighfar panjang. sedangkan ingin membeli barang berharga #10 pun saya berfikir panjang. Tak mengapalah. Itu wangnya hasil titik peluhnya bekerja keras. Saya berdoa agar Allah lindungi kami dari papa dan hutang.
