macro

Dontchya just love macro? Taken just for the fun colours.


Emailed C4 tv today to ask them why they broadcast two of my pictures without permission last week. They stole them from a band website... its not money so much, its just the fact they dont ask.
Great shot, nice idea!

February 10th, 2011  
Yes your macro rocks..!
February 10th, 2011  
Fantastic! Love the detail and colours.
February 10th, 2011  
Love it, which mm macro do you have and is it a nikon? Im looking.
February 10th, 2011  
@marileed Cant afford a real macro - this is £8 extension tubes!
February 10th, 2011  
I love this!! Such a cute idea and shot.
February 10th, 2011  
Love it-- so colorful and fun!
February 10th, 2011  
perfect...
February 10th, 2011  
love the colors!
February 10th, 2011  
Really? That stinks that they stole them! I hope they do something to make amends. This is a cool photo--I like the wood. Splinters waiting to happen, lol
February 10th, 2011  
Aww I like this one!
February 10th, 2011  
Beautiful detail!
February 10th, 2011

I love this one! Did you get a response from C4 tv? What macro lens do you use? I have a Nikon D90 and desperately want to buy one.
February 10th, 2011  
@dejongdd Just one email from them asking me where they stole the image from! Luckily its only online on a fanzine.
I cant afford a proper macro for nikon - this is extension tubes, cheap, effective and real good for the money !
February 10th, 2011  
@blightygal Bloomin cheek, there's plenty of it about ;). Hope you get some credit, or at least some readies for it. Mind you, well done for C4 choosing your photo, that's pretty cool!
Love this - I think I need to check out those extension tubes, this is amazing, love those splinters too.

@blightygal Tell me more about the extension tubes. what kind? where did you get them? details about them? My dad is a photographer and he suggested I get extension tubes instead of a macro lens primarily because of the cost issue. He uses a Canon though, so he didn't want to make recommendations for a Nikon.

Love it - gorgeous colours and love the way you get that ruffled circle in the middle where they meet.

@dejongdd http://www.amazon.co.uk/MACRO-EXTENSION-TUBES-NIKON-Adaptor/dp/B001CWVHTI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1297383913&sr=8-2 I hope this helps! I find they are great for the dosh, but when use all 4 very hard to focus and lose detail in the corners. I will get the real lens one day, but for now these are fun.

@blightygal Thanks so much! I wil definitely check it out! I'll keep you posted! I may need some advice later.
February 11th, 2011  
@dejongdd Welcome :-) Have fun with it if you do go ahead.
February 11th, 2011  
Cheeky C4!! Maybe if they paid you you could start that macro fund.
February 11th, 2011  
First love this shot. Great clarity in your close up. Second, I hope they pay up and give you credit for exposure and some money.... Those little thieves....
February 11th, 2011  
these colors make me happy, love it!
February 11th, 2011

Sooo pretty Frieda. Wonderful focus and detail.
February 11th, 2011  
Fun. Beautifully arranged.
February 11th, 2011  
yes, I do love macro. am diligently saving pennies so I can get a macro lens.
February 11th, 2011  
Wonderful shot. Love all the colors. Also, I like the sharpness, and how you can see the texture of the wood.
February 11th, 2011  
Neat!!!
February 11th, 2011

February 11th, 2011  
Fabulous!
February 11th, 2011  
Nice crispness to this shot, and wonderful colors, a great subject for a shot. Bummer about the shot stealing. This internet thing is hard to manage.
February 11th, 2011  
Clever!
February 11th, 2011  
cheeky f___king bastids! c4 of all the channels too...do keep us posted, would be good to hear if they get back to you.

like this mind, very colourful :) did a model shoot other day, will be posting soon
February 12th, 2011  
Beautiful, beautiful :)
February 12th, 2011  
@azza_l ooh, that sounds great! Glad you're keeping with photography :-)
WIll do over C4, I think will just send em a bill, followed by the normal small claims court thing after when they ignore the payment!
February 12th, 2011  
@blightygal where were the stills used? In a program and is it sum thing you spotted? Just wondered thats all.
February 12th, 2011  
@azza_l Yeah, two stills. A friend of mine runs a fanzine and I took some concert pics for that. C4 nicked quite a few other photographers images too, not just mine, but I was told about it. I quoted their own rules about copyright on their website at them, lol, and asked them why they didnt apply the same courtesy to everyone else!!
February 12th, 2011  
@azza_l Sorry, didnt ans your question, lol. I should be a politician. It was a programme on TV, a band profile thing on the Go-Team (who are awful btw!)
February 12th, 2011  
Love these colours, so vibrant. Shame about the C4 thing. Didn't know the Go_Team still going!
February 12th, 2011  
Love the colors!
February 12th, 2011  
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!!!
February 12th, 2011  
ah i see, well like i said do keep us posted :)
February 12th, 2011  
very cool
February 12th, 2011  
I'd love the colors and symmetry of this. I can totally see it hanging huge on a wall.
February 13th, 2011  
Wonderful colours I love it. A fav.
February 13th, 2011  
Gorgeous colors!!
February 14th, 2011  
Soo pretty! Love the colors.
February 15th, 2011  
nicely done! love the colors and detail! i have some macro filters but i also want to look into extension tubes. what did you use for lighting in this shot?
February 16th, 2011  
@azza_l Found out that C4 didnt make the programme, it was made and paid for by Go Team management - and thats ok. I photographed the gig and said at the time they could use the images (there is no money in live snaps) They did apologise and are going to put a byline up on the online copies of the vid.
February 16th, 2011  
@blightygal oh thats good, at least they got back to you i guess! will try and post model shots tonight. they still needed editing, quite impressed with them tho :)
