Macro Moments: Week 1

Welcome to Week 1 of my new Macro Moments Challenge! If you love Macro photography, please join in! This will be a place to share the beauty of macro photography and learn from each other.  A new challenge will begin each Wednesday, and I will announce the winner from the previous week when I post the new challenge. Instructions for how to participate are below.

I took this photo on my recent vacation in Maui, Hawaii and I love how it is backlit by the natural light and the bokeh softness of the background.  I shot it with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera using my Olympus M.60mm f.2.8 macro lens.  Settings were 1/80 sec , f /6.3, ISO 200.
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 midnight on Monday.
  • 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
