Green Bug Thingy
Not sure what this little critter is but it looks like a bit like a grasshopper to me or maybe it’s a cricket but I’ve never seen a cricket so I can’t say! Anyway, I was playing with my macro lens and have decided that it’s a tricky pest (the lens, that is) especially without a tripod. These shots are hand held but even so, the depth of field is so shallow, huge chunks of the picture are out of focus. It’s definitely going to take some getting used to as most of my favourite shots are fairly straight, in focus type shots not arty-farty, soft focus, abstract ones.
I’ve been working on some more abstract shots though so once I’ve processed them, I’ll post them here for some opinions
As for the question I posed the other day – yes, the tulip one is the photoshop soft focus one. The rose is almost straight from camera.
