Great macro shot. Very difficult to do any better than you did this one.


happy new year!

I've been getting to know my new D600. It's cold and dreary here in Northern Virginia, so I'm finding things to shoot in the house.

We have lots of stinkbugs, so when I found one in the shower this morning, I brought it down with me afterwords. It was kind of dopey and sluggish, which suited my photographic purposes. I put it on a black tee shirt so I had a dark background, mounted my Tamron 90 mm f/2.8 macro lens, and started shooting.

I must say, the resolution of the D600 is quite impressive. This image is a full 1:1 macro (closest focus on the Tamron macro with no extension tubes added.

Here is a link to the full-sized image on PBase:


I'm having problems with DPReview hanging, so I'm going to post this without an embedded photo. If that works, I'll include the embedded photo in a second post:
