Daily Deviation

Given 2007-10-23
Sanctuary by *andras120 - A beautiful Macro work. There is the standard way to take a picture of a flower, and then there is this one that shows you there is still room to be creative, think of composition, and do unique photography where all has been done before... Thanks for sharing ! ( Suggested by gilad and Featured by hellfirediva )

This deserved the DD - May I ask what type of Macro lens you use?

I use a Sigma 70mm f2.8 Macro for all my up close stuff. Thanks!

Thanks I've been considering the purchase of a dedicated Macro - It looks like the Sigma turns out some great quality

If you look at the various reviews of Canon, Nikon and Sigma macro lenses, this one scores as well if not better for quality. It's not HSM, and will sometimes seek focus in lower light conditions. But for the money, it's awesome.

I just bought the 70mm Sigma Macro (for Canon) that came out last year. All the reviews said it was better than the equivalent L series Canon glass and so far I can't argue. I would have preferred either the 105mm or 150mm, but also wanted it to double as a portrait lens as well. I was also pleased with the price of the lens, as it was in the low $400's, which is inexpensive for this quality of glass. I've included a link to the Sigma website for a 105mm Macro lens for your E500 so you can read up on it. Hope this helps.

the very cool thing about it is that it's filling the picture completley, so you can't see the edges of the flower

I'm sure many have said this, but your photograph is like a Georgia O'Keeffe flower, big, bright, bold, and beautiful.

Too many Bs?

Thanks, Mark. I like simple and it doesn't get much more so than this image. To me, sometimes the barest essense of form tells more than a more complex depiction. After looking at your gallery I believe you might feel the same way. Your approach to doing nudes seems to be of the same aesthetic.
