Hi guys and girls!

Sorry i havent been around for ages! Ive had next to no time to get my camera out lately it seems!

Ill try find some time to check out some of what i've missed here! Amazing stuff im sure..

Anyway, i bought a macro lens a little while back.. it wasn't the exact one i wanted but i got a good deal on it so can't complain! Its a great lens.. the Tamron 90mm.. still getting used to the tiny DOF that comes with macro.. nailing that focus spot on where you want it is not easy!

Australia is known to have a lot of flies.. especially in the outback where you will often be plagued by them trying to steal moisture from you.

One morning i got up early and found these guys waiting for the sun to come up.. im still not sure if i like the pic or hate it haha

nice artistic capture of the 4 flies, like the idea and the tender colors, i just do not find a focus point. to get a higher
dof it would be better to use a bigger aperture (> f/11) and not fully opened at f/2.8. best wishes & take care, thor.

  • Great
