My first post on this amazing site.
The useful information on here is incredible and has been a great help in understanding close up photography.
My interest in macro photography started approx 30 years ago with an old Zenith manual camera but following the recent purchace of a Nikon D200 I am getting more into the world of close-up. (Just like it! working more with close-up as my eye sight fails! :lol: )

This is the result of todays play with my set up, that is evolving with use.
The fly is 5mm long, approx 10 photos stacked, a small crop and a bit of tweaking wth sharpness etc. (note to self: keep a record of settings)

Excellent first post morgan and welcome to the forums. :D I am new to macro myself, compared to 30yrs of experience but you are right, there is much to be gained from these forums. There is, cumulative, a vast number of years of experience here. Great details and nice warm colors in this fly, very nice work indeed. :D

And another hearty welcome to the forums Morgan (extending a virtual hand out in friendship). Some really great detail in this first post IMO. I always love the incredible hairs on these critters. Please make yourself at home and I look forward to seeing more :smt023

Welcome to the forums Ted. We have a wonderful mix of people here. I always love seeing creatures from the other side of the world. It makes for a great mix. Remember...we were all newbies at one time :wink: :D

The welcome and encouragement I have received since I very recently joined is indeed gratifying. I have made a few minor attempts at macro but have been mainly working with mainstream subjects: flowers, birds, places and people etc. (http://www.pbase.com/tedchappell/galleries)

My macro learning curve is simply vertical at this stage, but I am very keep to start the climb, albeit slowly.

Cheers
Ted
