BEE Macro

•April 4, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I’ve been craving to shoot some macro photos for quite some time but since I don’t have a dedicated macro lens, I’ve decided to use my Lensbaby Composer with stacked close-up filters of +4 and +10.  With timing and luck, I was able to capture these bee images while avoiding the sting for getting way too close (less than 2 inches from the subject).  These images were submitted to the photo contest of Lensbaby at http://www.lensbaby.com, unfortunately it didn’t win.

Note: No bees were harmed in the shooting of these images

Baguio HDR Panorama

Hello World!  What a way to start my first Photoblog!  Been thinking of doing this for quite a while now.  Well, this is it, my first post of hopefully many more posts to come.

To start ball rolling, this is a panoramic view of my home city: Baguio City, Philippines.  Shot a total of nine images: three scenes with three exposures each and merged using Photomerge in Adobe Photoshop.  These are basically the major structures found in Baguio.  With its cool climate due to the high altitude, it is considered as the Summer Capital of the Philippines.  Click on the image to view the full panorama.
