Assignment 3: Macro


Ashley Ngu: Pollination Duty


I tracked this bee for a good while as it flitted about from flower to flower in the cactus gardens.Manual focusing on a small moving target is a struggle, but I lucked out with this shot using a fast shutter speed. I used a 60mm f/2.8 macro lens which allowed me to get incredibly close to the bee.No processing.This photograph meets Requirement 2 (Focus on the midground) and 3 (Bugs). The foreground of the flower and leaf and background are both blurred out due to the shallow DoF.
