    • I have a Canon 100mm f/2.8L macro lens, but I actually shot this with my camera’s kit lens. It’s a composite image; the background is made by playing with a filter in photoshop, then overlaying it with a cut out bit of the original (if that makes any sense).
      I am honoured you think I have anything to teach, and will do so happily.

      • I have a 40mm f/2.8. And no photoshop. I think the lens is the problem (notice how I bypassed any blame on me πŸ˜€ ). My photos, except for a bit of straightening up, are pretty much out of the camera. I am going to have to practice more. Your macros are truly exceptional, Su.

        • Thank you Lois. There are lots of good photo-editing apps around for tablets, etc. I really like Snapseed and was using it almost exclusively until I forced myself to learn a bit about PhotoShop.
          There are some real advantages to a 40mm lens β€” especially the weight. The 100 is really heavy and I take way more wobbly shots than good ones 😬😬

  1. What fun! I’m trying to decided on an editing app but unsure what to get and how much I want to pay. If I were a professional, it would be one thing, but I’ve gotten used to having Picasa for free (even though they stopped supporting it a few years ago) or using free apps on my iPad.

    • Thanks Jude. Most of my twirls have been really disappointing: either too much white space, or uniformly brown. Putting it together with the original was the hardest part β€” I really hadn’t grasped how masks work 😬

  2. It always strikes me odd to be reminded the weather is so very different in the Southern Hemisphere. We are struggling to get Spring to stick and stay warm while it is turning colder more gradually where you are.
