Backyard Macro (Seattle)
To commemorate my new tripod setup (see here), I went out to…*drumroll*…my own backyard 😀 To take some macro pics of course! Found some nice flowers and bugs, and spent an hour happily shooting with my new Gtizo and Markins combination. Verdict? Amazing. Ridiculously easy to use, and stable in even the most outlandish of posturing. For a few shots I had the tripod on an upwards sloping driveway, with one leg totally retracted and almost 90 degrees from the center column propped against an inclined rock face, with the ball head tilted down 45 degrees diagonally to the left. No shake. All done in less than 15 seconds. Winner.
Always wowed at what you can find if you only choose to step out your door. Even 20 feet. The wonders of nature are at your fingertips, and a macro lens really comes to life 😀
Here’s the proof.
Some bumblebee’s were buzzing around so I quick-released the camera off of the head and chased them around for a bit.
More shots from some previous sunsets and sunrises still to come! Thanks for reading, get out there and shoot shoot shoot everyone!
