Hi Band. Welcome to Shuttertalk. Nice images. Macros of flowers and bugs are a great way to get your feet wet in photography. Can you tell what camera you are using and possibly the settings you used for taking these pics?

Also, I took the liberty of fixing the links to your images. The tags were not complete and the images very large. Full size I would think. Use the buttons just above the post window to insert image tags and you can't go wrong. Also, it isn't necessary to use a host as you can upload right from your computer if you'd like. Smile

I am using a Canon Rebel S 35 mm , The lens is a 70-300 mm f4-5.6, Macro Super ( Sigma ).
I shot these free handed ( no tirpod ) . Right when i got the lens so i am not sure of all the setting on the camera . sorry i will keep this in mind about the settings .
I have a few more but i need to clean my scanner and figure out how to resize to fit on here .
Thanks for the help .

Great colors. It looks like a wedding (except for the bee of course).

Hi BD - welcome to Shuttertalk. Nice macros you've posted - some interesting detail on the flowers and the bees. I'd be interested to know how you're scanning them as well - there seems to be some discernable grain in the background...

Hello to all ,
and thank you for you complements . I could have been wrong about the scanning. I think these might have been on a photo cd that i got with the pics. I wasnt tryin to mislead . I have been scanning and uploading at the same time . Im not used to people being intersted in " everything " that i have done with the pics. I will be more careful to take notes on everything.
