My first Macro photo accepted!

posted on 7th of april, 2010

After struggling with my new macro lens I got my first macro photo accepted!

Macro photography is a world of it's own. Poor depth of sharpness needs a high aperture value, which easily causes a shaken photo. You need strong light with the disadvantage of hard shadowing. A tripod or a bean sack is nearly a must.

Here is my first successfull macro photo:

Besides concept: Light is (nearly) everything

Amberg, Bavaria, South Germany:
This town has a very impressive medieval city with an old double town wall, massive gates, picturesque churches and buildings.

The same photo below with the church and the river was made by my brother a year ago but it was not accepted - the sky and the light were too poor.

During my last visit I had the best blue sky
which you can imagine and excellent morning light - regrettable only for around one hour.

The sky is real! No photoshop or gimp trick!

Searching through DT I found more photos of Amberg from another photographer, who
had more luck (or time) with the light:

Since I know...

Besides other things there is one major item to learn here: Patience.

Patience to get the first photos accepted.

Patience to get my first (and quite ugly) avatar photo changed (around 2 month!).

Patience for the first sale (still waiting for it).

Patience for the photos under review (currently there are 6 photos of mine under review for around two days now - at least they are not immediately rejected!)

Patience for learning from rejections ...

Don't forget all the patience the photographers from DT need to review our photos and
help us to become better ...

Nevertheless: It makes fun!!!

Jdanne, glad you got the shot. Here's when the D700's better noise control helped. I am using entry level Nikons and do not have good noise reduction software. So all my photos submitted were kept at ISO100-ISO200 with minimum processing. I do have a few shots at ISO400 but those were sent as it is without post processing. You still have a few more photos i liked. Look forward to more of your contributions online.

Unteroffizier: That fish photo was made under quite difficult conditions: Bad light, ISO value 1000(!), free hand, open aperture: Nevertheless it was one of my first photos accepted and got nearly the highest number of views.
