Once upon a Macro

A selection of some old and new macro pictures I added to my portfolio.

The first one I ever took is the one of the droplets on a spider web. I still remember the day I took it. It was a misty morning of October 2015 and I was in Poole, on a rented flat with a little garden. I did not even have a macro lens but only a normal zoom lens and a Raynox 250 filter (strongly recommended!!).

I saw a rather big spider web completely covered with droplets and so I decided toI set up my tripod and camera equipment.

Fortunately it wasn’t windy so keeping the droplets in focus was relatively simple. Max zoom, a sufficient aperture to have enough depth of field and…click! 🙂
