Welcome to Macro Moments Challenge: Week 32 and thank you to everyone who entered last week’s challenge. This week we are back to just Macro or close-up, no specific theme.
I would like to suggest that, if you have it, you include the EXIF data for your entry if it is available. This includes shutter speed, ISO, aperture setting, and any other camera settings used, as well as if your flash fired and whether the camera was on a tripod. This takes some time to enter, but we can really learn a lot from each other by studying this information.
Congratulations to our Week 31 winner, Candace of https://netdancer.com/ , for her delightful photo of a newly hatched baby chick!
I shot this daffodil during this past week on a very rainy day when it seemed like Spring would never arrive. I used it as my entry for The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Against the Odds. It was very windy, so even though my camera was on a tripod and I used a remote trigger, there was movement of the flower and it is somewhat blurry. The EXIF data is in the caption.
This is a place to share the beauty of macro photography and learn from each other. Please join in! A new challenge begins each Wednesday, and I announce the winner from the previous week when I post the new challenge. The winner’s photo will be featured on this blog used as the banner in the announcement for the next week’s challenge, unless I am requested not to use it.
Here’s how the challenge works:
- Choose a favorite macro photo from the past week or from your archives.
- Create a new post on your blog entitled “Macro Moments: Week (insert week)“.
- Add the photo to your post and a brief description. I would love to know, as I am sure others would, too, what camera and lens you used and your settings.
- You may submit more than one photo, but submit each in a separate post if you want to be included in the judging.
- Deadline for submitting your entries is 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, Pacific Time.
- Create a * pingback to this post and/or leave a link to your post in the comments section.
- Tag your post Macro Moments so others can find it.
If you’re not sure how to create a pingback, Here are instructions
