Bugging Out
Monday 12 November 2012   —   Category: Shooting

It’s November in Oregon, and the bugs seems to be coming out of the woodwork — literally! In the past couple of weeks, I have gotten good shots of three different insects — without even looking for them on purpose. Two of these critters I happened to notice while barbequing in the backyard, and the other while I was taking test photos with my new Panasonic 35-​100​mm lens.

For these three insect shots, I used three different lenses. The top photo to the right was taken with my recently-acquired Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens (150mm equivalent). The bug on the pumpkin was shot with the above-mentioned Panasonic 35-​100​mm (70-​200​mm equivalent). A third insect, not pictured on this page, was captured with my new Olympus 60mm f/2.8 macro lens (120mm equivalent).

I’ve added pictures of these three creatures to the Macro Magic 2012 photo album. I’ve included both lower-magnification versions which are not cropped much as well as extensively-cropped 100% magnification versions. All in all I’m pretty happy with the performance of these lenses, and my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera.

I’ve only had the 60mm macro for a few days, so I haven’t had much opportunity to try it out. I’m looking forward to using it create more macro magic — this year, next year, and in the years to come.
