Camera: Canon
Model: Canon EOS 350D DIGITAL
ISO: 200
Exposure: 1/250 sec
Aperture: f/5.6
Focal Length: 51mm


Just got my Canon 350D a few days ago, was playing around with some close-ups.
I know its not the sharpest of images, but its not that bad in my opinion...especially the background.
I used the kit 18-55 lens..

Comments appreciated! ;)

I agree with you on the bokeh (background blurr).

The shot seems well exposed, with only a few hotspots on the bug.

FWIW, if you want to continue doing macro, it is usually recommended that you don't center the subject. Instead, crop the picture so that the bug has more room in the direction he is facing.

Your composition works too, though. Good shot!

I like that there's a single blade of grass in the shot. If you like marcos, you need a 70-300 lens. Much fun!
You're off to a great start though!

Thanks for the comments,
AirBrontosaurus- I did crop the photo as it was slightly off centre.
Epluim, talking about a longer zoom lens..i got my Sigma 55-200 this morning in the post...its not an L series Canon, but for €119 im pretty satisfied. Plus it comes with a lens hood and caps.

Anyways, heres a photo with it...

Good images to bring into the forum and welcome.
Good sharp shots on the subject with good background blur. The flowers are nicely exposed with good colour, well done.
