Photography Interviews: Macro
Welcome to an interview of the amazingly talented Macro photographers: relhom, dalantech and JoniNiemela. We hope you will enjoy the insight this interview might provide you on Macro photography, and each of their personal experiences and views.
Can you please introduce yourself, and tell us a little bit about your experience as a macro photographer?
relhom:
Richard Mohler 59 from Las Vegas.. I don't know that I consider myself a macro photographer, just enjoy taking close ups of water drops and various other things..If I lived somewhere where we had spectacular scenery I'd probably take pictures of that instead of mainly water drops..
dalantech:
My name is John Kimbler, and I'm a network engineer. So I guess I'm just a geek with a macro lens ;) (Wink) I started shooting color positive slide film back in the late 80s, when there was a big argument between people who wanted to capture what was "really there" (they used Kodachro

morbidman187's selections:

Singapore Blue by melvynyeo
Wonderfully captures the detail and different colors of the tarantula. 

Crocodile by kuritoo
A nice close up look at the eye and all the different details and textures. 

Goodbye by Pinjootje
Mix of strong contrast and floating seeds makes everything stand out even more.

Undiscovered Art
Time to discover some art (and artists) that could use some extra exposure.  Don't just fave-and-run, tell the Deviant why you clicked that little yellow star.  Give them some encouragement and put a smile on their face!  We all could use a little more happiness in our days.  =) (Smile)

The Under-Loved, Vol. 14
This is a feature for the under-loved, so as always, each of these pieces has less than 300 :+fav:s and less than 100 comments (at the time I added them to the feature), so please do show these artists and authors some love for their work. Some of these may have been featured as Daily Deviations, but please don't let that stop you from offering the artists critique if they still have that feature enabled! :D

Sleeping Solitary Bee II
Here's a higher magnification view of how this solitary bee uses it's proboscis to anchor itself while it sleeps.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Sleeping Solitary Bee I
Not the first time I've seen this species of solitary bee sleeping with it's proboscis anchored into a flower's stamen.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Mason Maintenance
The bad weather is really making it tough for the local pollinators. I was shooting this waterlogged Mason Bee when he started cleaning the water off of his fur.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (3x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Red Mason Bee IV
This newly hatched Red Mason Bee (male) is one of mine. The cocoons I harvested last year are starting to hatch. Due to the cool temps (13C) and overcast skies this little one was having a tough time getting his metabolism up. He would move around and then freeze, and I'd look for a photo.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/125, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT ("A" flash head on a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe), E-TTL metering, 0 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Red Mason Bee III
About a dozen Mason Bees hatched today, and I carried them to some flowers so they could get some energy. Due to the cool (14C) partly cloudy weather they had a hard time getting their metabolism going. This little guy would forage for a while then turn around to look outside the flower. His metabolism would tank and every time he stopped moving I'd look for a photo.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200 due to Highlight Tone Priority) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 2.5x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount to keep the flower from blocking the "A" flash head), E-TTL metering, (+1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
