Spot free ladybug, unusual to see. Looks harmless, but is the Tyrannosaurus Rex of the bug world. Used in many gardens for bug control.
Dahlia’s and bee’s…perfect match!
Used a flash for some fill light, made the background a little darker which made for a nice affect.
Got this flower from a pumpkin vine, tripod about 4″ off the ground.
Captured these right around twilight, used a strobe and noticed the background almost gone. I used lightroom and underexposed the background to make them float.
Camera set to spot meter the rim in bright sun and the rest of the car disappeared in the middle of the day, Lightroom removed helped underexpose residual light light spots
Tested an old 35-105/3.5 macro lens and really loved how the colors and textures turned out. Experimenting with DOF and focus. This is a great flower to shoot all the way through fall.
