I’ve been intending to take some outdoor macros for some time now. I traded my Olympus TG-3 in on Amazon and used the funds to get the TG-4. So when WordPress posted the Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up on Friday, and my new camera came in on Monday, I knew it was time to get to shooting (not that I couldn’t have used my primary camera, but it’s easy to have excuses when you want them).
In any case, here are some macros taken around my apartment. I’m hoping to go to a more exciting location soon…
Really beautiful work. I especially like what I think is the Elephant Ear leaf? The color and composition are beautiful and soothing.
Thank you so very much. I think you may be right on the type of leaf.
Beautiful photos! I use the Olympus Tough as well, tough mine is the older TG-2. Is it worth upgrading, do you think?
I really like that the 4 can shoot in RAW and has selective focus. Those 2 things were really important to me. But those are also the only 2 differences between the tg3 and 4. Not sure how much the tg3 differs from the tg4, but if you’re not concerned with RAW it’s probably not worth the upgrade. For me I probably wouldn’t have upgraded either for money reasons had I not been able to trade in my tg3 through Amazon.
Good to know. I love the camera, but my zoom plays up sometimes so I’ve been thinking about what to do. Maybe an upgrade is the way to go. Thanks for the info!
Also, thank you :)
Wow. Gorgeous spider. Did I just say that?
haha, well thank you. I thought the same and was confused as well :P It’s only a couple millimeters long, so not too scary in real life.
Beautiful images…yes…love the cicada skin. :)
Thank you :)
Stunning photos Jennifer. That ant is great and those greens in the grass and leaves are so vivid and crisp. Love them.
Thank you very much!!
Beautiful photos! Looks like a nice camera! :)
Thanks! And yes, I’m really enjoying it.
Ah, the beauty in simple things!
These are awesome macro shots… The details are vivid and the colors are really natural. Good work! :)
Thank you very very much!

Thanks so much!
Awesome close ups i like the spider
Thank you :)
I like the noise in your ant photo (with the pink flowers). It makes it look more poster than photo. Spiders are icky btw, no one needs to see a spider that close up lol
Haha ill keep that in mind. And thank you.
Very nice close-ups!!
That spider is awesome! Looking forward to more.
Thank you so much!
