Tuity Fruity – Testing Macro Features

27 Sep

It is a tuity fruity post for today. These fruits are found along the Punggol Beach Park Connector. The grass are littered with this tempting fruits but alas they are not edible to eat. At least not for human consumption.

I was testing out the various apertures, especially for close-up looks. This photo has this values : F2.2, 1/800 sec, ISO 100, -0.7 EV.

Green Fruits

This one here was shoot at : F3.2, 1/800 sec, ISO 100, -0.7 EV. This tree is not that tall but already bearing fruits.

These orange flowers looking bright and pretty, when polluninated, become such fruits as shown in the next picture. Values : F5.6, 1/200 sec, ISO 200, 0 EV.

These are the fruits of that orange flowers. Values F8, 1/60 sec, ISO 200, 0 EV.

White and Green Fruits

It takes quite a while to get familiar with a new camera and I am nowhere near the comfort level of my old camera. Weird thing on this camera : increasing EV value from 0 to +3 above is pressing the button to the left and for decreasing EV value to -3 etc is to the right. Complete opposite of what I am used to on my Olympus camera.

These photos were taken with a prime lens – 35mm F1.8 on a Nikon 5100. This lens is excellent with low light conditions, no flash needed. F1.8 does not give the best result, mostly the central part is in focus with very blurry edges. With some subjects and compositions, the photos may just work.

Time to experiment!
