Assignment 3: Macro


Ben Foorman: Takeoff


This photo satisfies requirement 3 (bugs).

I found this guy on a rose and watched him moving back and forth, anticipating his imminent takeoff, and snapped the picture just as he was about to fly away. Ended up with a cool shot exposing the ladybug's elytra and wings.

Used my camera in aperture priority mode with a close up filter (hence the high f number) to get the close macro and shallow depth of field.

f/18.0, 1/60
