Hi LarryD, I used a macro lens that came with my Canon kit that also included a wide angel and a zoom lens as well. It was a great kit for the price. I definitely have enjoyed the macro lens so much over the years. My high tech system consists of a piece of clear glass with a construction clamp on it to hold it with so I don't warm up the glass with my hand. I usually have a flashlight close by in case I need more lighting. I use things like different colored balls, and toys for my background. However, lately I've been just using the blue tarp hanging off my deck with a light behind it for a background. It's such a pretty color blue. After I post the photos to my computer I do crop in on the flake I shot but that's it. Hope that helps. Thanks to all for stopping by I always appreciate hearing from everyone. Happy shooting.

A tweleve pointed dentrite, pretty uncommon. I would love to hear what your technique was. I looked at the EXIF data and it showes a 48 mm lens. Were you using extension tubes? What was your background? Somekind of glass it looks like. Super job and not an easy photo to take.

Outstanding!!! One of the most beautiful and intricate flakes I have ever seen (12 point star) ... and an excellent macro. The focus is so crisp. A blue border would complement this nicely.

About stoneygirl

stoneygirl

My name is Debbie and I live in Central Massachusetts. I am a mom of 2, a grandma to Jace and a "Mama Stone" (as I'm called) to about 25 rental kids as I call them. I consider myself to be a serious maybe even (as all my kids would say, "Obsessed" photographer. If it moves I photograph it, if breaths I photograph it, if it doesn't breath I photograph it and if it doesn't move I photograph it even more. Ok, so my kids are right, I'm obsessed. I never leave home with out it, my camera that is. I've always loved photography but as I've headed into my mid-life crisis period I have begun to open my eyes to more of the wonder around me. Why it took so long I don't know but look out world I have arrived. Now I have a thirst to make up for lost time and I love Wunderground and all of the wunderful photographers I get to share my world with. I absolutely love seeing everyone�s photos from around the world and for that I thank all of you for your wonderful generosity for sharing them with me and us on this great site. Smile say cheese now!!Large Visitor Globe
