I love Macro Photography so I devote a lot of my time to it. I'm learning... slowly. Opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
Blair

Not only are you doing a good job technically, you also have a good eye for composition.

Great series. Full EXIF info would be useful so we can see lens, f-stop used, etc.

I find them all quite soft. Work more on focusing?

You're off to a good start. I like the frog the best. I also noticed a bit of softness on a couple and getting a bit more even lighting will help as well. Have fun - macro is addicting and very challenging.

Some of the apparent softness may be coming from using ISO 1600 on a T1i.

Great start! these look great
Not a hard rule, but macro is best done with low-noise ISO (based on your camera capabilities)

I liked the crab spider image

I'd have to agree they are a bit soft, but composition on your subject is really great!

Did you use auto focus or manual focus when taking these?


Thanks -
Justin
