A Bee and Some Comments on Close-up Photography (Two Photographs)

I took these less than a minute apart. The light changed and while I am pleased with the photos, I did not use artificial light. With artificial light I could have lowered the ISO and improved the quality of the photo with a touch more detail and greater sharpness. A higher ISO would have added too much visible noise. The photo was cropped significantly as are most close-up photos of insects. My conclusion is that insect photography, even in bright sunlight benefits from artificial light (and extension tubes). Technical details: 1/400th of a second and f7.1, ISO 640 on a cropped sensor Nikon D7200 with a full frame 105mm lens and no extension tubes.

  4. While I understand what you are saying, I like them this way too. Sometimes I accidentally get a macro shot that looks like it was done in a studio. Its great but not sure I’d want them all that way. These are beautiful photos.
