My first outing with 80mm macro (in fact, my first ever Fuji outing!)
14

Hey All:

As a macro shooter, I cultivated a garden filled with pollinating flowers in my backyard for the purpose of shooting bees and wasps. This is my first garden. I wanted to create a botanical garden experience in the back of my house to avoid the commute to the actual botanical gardens. I used to be a Sigma (foveon) camera user and i sold all my Sigma equipment for a Fuji X-T2. Here are the results of my very first outing. The bigger insects (bees and wasps) have not yet made a strong showing. The scene is mainly dominated by hover flies, etc.

I am still working on my manual focus. I usually go about as close as the lens will allow. I shot these raw but I think I will shoot fine jpegs from now on. Comments appreciated.

Fujifilm X-T2
