Took the new camera out Sunday to play around a bit. It would certainly be nice if Olympus or Panasonic came out with a slightly longer macro lens (a 150mm wouldn’t be amiss…), but still was able to get some fun shots.
Some shots from the UT Gardens today. Doesn’t look like there will be much more in the way of pictures after this week – though soon the leaves will be changing, which means pictures of a different sort…
Third attempt at some HDR macro shots. I’m not sure whether the effect on these is mostly from the HDR brackets themselves, or the processing that HDR Efex is putting on the images. Either way, I think the technique is interesting.
Some additional shots, this time exclusively from the UT gardens. Three of these are HDR macros, which I’m discovering can be somewhat tricky to take.
Shots from both the UT Gardens and Knoxville Gardens today. Lots of fun stuff to take pictures of this time of year. Also started experimenting with several HDR macro shots, which I think is probably much less common that general HDR shots. Will probably continue experimenting, as the effect can be cool.
Another shot from the Knoxville Botanical Gardens today…
Shooting in Boone reminded me that once upon a time, I actually took pictures. Since it’s that time of the year, I decided to head out to the Knoxville Botanical Gardens. Some fun shots from the afternoon.
We were in Boone, NC this weekend for a good friend’s wedding, and our hotel happened to have an incredible selection of flowers on the grounds. Perfect time to play with the Olympus and see how it handles with the 60mm macro.
Spent some time Wednesday with the new 60mm Olympus macro. Working distance isn’t great, but all in all seems like a nice lens… now if only there were more pretty things to take pictures of…
Had a few minutes after a meeting today, and decided to stop by the gardens here at UT. Not bad. Was good to take some macro shots again. Perhaps will do video at some point, if I have more time.
