Macro Monday – Stamens

As usual, I start the week with a macro photo. For those less familiar with macro photography, I want to remind you that macro photography means photographing small and very small objects up to 1: 1 reproduction rates.

The reproduction ratio is the ratio between the life size of the subject and the size of its image on the sensor or film.

So, macro photography is useful every time we want to photograph small subjects like the stamens of a flower as you see in this photo.

You are all invited to take part in this challenge that I initiated more than two years ago.

For those who want to try, here are the settings I used to take this photo:

Camera: Nikon D5200

Lens: Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro

Settings: f 8, 1/200sec, ISO 100

  • Do you have any idea which flowers these stamens belong to?

    • Yes
    • No


What do you think?
