[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi friends in TL,

I have been posting shots with 60mmFL macro optics and some of our TL members are curious about the closeness of the lens and the subject. Here is an example of a photographer getting down low with the tripod aside (tripod is very useful) with 60mm macro optics.

Thanks for viewing!

:)))...mcm kebetulan pulak...baru berapa hari lalu saya post gambar di Facebook, seorang kawan dgn pose istimewa mengambil gambar macro dgn Nikkor 105mm macro nya.

kaki tripod tu agak mengganggu sedikit....:)


Thank you for sharing this one Jusni!

Photographically not great but very helpful in terms of macro shooting. Even though my Sigma is a "macro" lens, its closest focal distance is 45cm which means I could never get as close as this.

Even so, it's good information for me!

HI Jusni
I do get down that close, the problem starts when I have to get back up. lol
A good shot which can really help people understand macro photography. Good idea to leave the tripod leg to make your point.

Hi Again Jusni, a special moment for a photographer indeed. TFS.

hello Jusni

Very well chosen composition even with the tripod leg to show a close up action shot and it is seen under the harsh light, some shadow on the camera, face and FG area. For macro, the selection is mostly from 60-180mm range depending on price and usage application.

tfs, bill

aku pernah post bunga ne dulu.. tapi tak lah cantik sangat.. apa pon nice shot of your friend in action bro.. kalo sharp sikit lagi ok.. apa pon good try..

regards, terry

Salam Jusni,
a well captured shot of this guy in deep trance of photographic dance. The deep concentration is seen and felt. the facial expression is an indication of this "flow" of strength.
The lens is very powerful. Talking about lens,
the Tamron Mirror 500mm that I use is really difficult to handle, but the effect if exact is splashingly beautiful. It is very strange cos I can control the aperture, I can only control the speed. The focussing also is very delicate and perfection is needed.
Hope you will try one day.


NB: Arini memang cadang nak pi mengamok di Bukit Wang, tapi hangat la..makatak jadi. Duduk dlm rumah aje , tulis critique yg terhutang ni.
