Week 13 – Becky



My backyard never fails me for subjects.  Just have to be patient.  I loved how the bright sun made this little guy glow.  Yes, I know you shouldn’t take photos in the bright sunlight.  But, when you put shade over him he just didn’t seem to glow.  So, I went with the bright sun shot.  Cropped it down some.  I loved the bokeh achieved by the foliage behind.  Shot with the Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode.  Used Clarity filter in Topaz Adjust followed by some slight dodge and burn around the head.  Settings were f3.2, 1/320sec, 6mm and iso100.

Happy Clicking! 🙂

  1. Isn’t it a beautiful green color! Getting it in the direct light was a good choice. Looks iridescent. You can even see its tiny eye. Nice macro!
