Re: A few dragonfly and damsel close-ups
In reply to Steve West, Nov 19, 2012

So I finally took the plunge and bought a macro lens (Tamron 90) and flash (HVL F43) for use with my a55. These pics are from a couple of my first forays. Because I am just getting into this, I am probably focusing more on technical things like DOF and focus (not to mention learning how not to scare my subjects away) rather than the more creative aspects such as composition and colour.

Appreciate any C&C and suggestions for improvement
