  • It looks like the memory card issue I had with a specific card corrupting a file from time to time.  The card would only corrupt one or two images out of 500 or so, but annoying when it did it. I ...
  • Created photo thread Another insect close up
    Hand held in the garden. I will need to try focus stacking one day soon.
  • Have you done a focus calibration test? To me, the shot of your netflix remote shows the focus is actually behind the netflix button.  So you may need a negative number in your lens focus fine tune.
  • Replied in Jumping Jack
    Yes, I was worried about damaging their vision. The scratch built diffuser I was trying out now spreads the flash over a 5" x 6" sheet of heavy tracing paper. The flash was set manually at a little ...
  • Created photo thread Jumping Jack
    I found the tiny and very cute Jumping Spider in the agapanthus again this afternoon (I just love the orange eyebrows). A lot less co-operative this time around and clearly wasn't happy with ...
  • I think it is a cicada larva nymph.  They develop underground and then dig its way out. It will climb up a tree or shrub and then shed its exoskeleton to become an adult.
  • Yes, I understand the limitations of fine tuning.  I intend to use this lens solely for close up work and have dialed it in for f/16 and ultra close. I did get a small amount of practice outside ...
  • I did some impromptu indoor work today. See: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62903624 and https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62903639 These were all with the autofocus and I think it ...
  • Created photo thread More of Katy
    Strong gusty winds made outside macro work almost impossible despite the sunny conditions. So it became an impromptu studio session with a sprig of the pencil pine which I found one of the ...
  • Created photo thread Stink Bug

  • The breathing technique was taught to me for rifle shooting back when I was in the Air Force.  Many of the same skills carry across to photography with a DSLR.  I know several ex-servicemen and ...
  • G'day Thanks.  Yes, all were hand held. For the Eucalyptus Shield Bug, the lens was resting against the tree bark which helped significantly.
  • Thanks. I am quite impressed with this lens so far. I have tweaked the settings in Lightroom a bit more since I posted these and have extracted a tad more sharpness from the details. I must confess ...
  • G'day Ernie I have an SB5000 flash and I use the SW-15H diffuser that came with the flash.I had the flash on manual mode and needed to fire a few test shots and adjust the flash to get the exposure ...
  • Thanks Kalpesh
  • Created discussion thread 105mm Macro Lens: Day 2
    Went for a stroll down to the Torrens River (really a creek) and found a very nice Eucalyptus Shield Bug (Poecilometis patruelis). I only found it bu accident as I was checking out the bark nearby ...

  • Thanks Joseph I looked around today, didn't see it.  I will keep my eyes open.
  • G'day Joeseph The location is suburban Adelaide, South Australia. The actual size is quite small, roughly 8 mm (5/16 inch) in length. I thought it was some sort of Crane Fly. It would be great to ...
  • Created discussion thread New Nikkor 105mm macro
    From the macro forum:  My first foray into the garden with my new 105mm macro lens on the D500. Everything at f/16. Will try higher apertures next to tweak the DOF. Anthony https://www.flickr.com/p ...
