Just getting started in this macro thing and trying some ideas. Critique please.
I like it.
I really like this.
nice shot now im scared
Good work... Nice arrangement, but I don't know how I feel about the distance blur.
I agree here, if your just getting started with macro, macro is all about being totally sharp, I like the shot and maybe this is the effect you were going for, but a tip for future macro use, increase your f stop to at least f13 - f16 for the sharpest macro images, that will give the best dof on most lens', did you shoot this with a dedicated macro lens?
First off, thanks to everyone who has commented, its appreciated. Second, I did use a macro lens, a Tamron 90mm to be exact. I do kinda like the sharpness on one point and a little blur elsewhere, but I will certainly try the F stop method as well. Lets see what I get. Thanks you guys.
Ok, I worked on my F stop and this is what I got. You know, Im not sure which one I prefer.
I like the second one better, lots more detail.
Eh, I didn't like how much detail was obscured in the first one's bokeh, but that second one doesn't look half as good as the original.
I like the effect the bokeh has on the badge and how it obscures the pens.
So I vote for #1.
I think I agree with you. I like the first one better. I shot a ton of photos using the second method, and just wasnt feeling it. I like the out of focus stuff, I think it adds character and gives the photo more to look at. The second ones just a photo with a great amount of detail, but not much more.
I guess theres no "right" way to do it. I really appreciate you guys take on this.
