Close ups & macros using MX-1
Mar 28, 2013

Thought I'd try a few close-ups and macros using the little MX-1. All taken in RAW, but very little PP used ... a bit of contrast boost, and sharpening for web. That's it.

Using the 1cm macro setting is very interesting - the lens was about 15mm from this tiny pink flower. Biggest challenge is avoiding shadows ...

The lens was perhaps 3cm from these dead buds

Colours are very accurate and true to life

All these were hand-held, and with the fast f1.8 - 2.5 lens, deep DOF is easy to achieve...

The sheer solidity of this little black beauty helps enormously in keeping things steady. A big advantage IMHO

Rope detail at the local port ....

Kind regards
