Close-Up @ KL Orchid Park

September 22nd, 2007 | Bob Tahar

Without any macro lens I went for photo outing with some friends hoping to get some macro image or at least a close-up of the orchid flowers. I end up with most of the time at the lotus pond just to get that damn! Bee in-framed with the lotus flower.

Its a near impossible task, I only brought my Nikkor 18-55 ED & Nikkor 50mm F1.8 attached with Pro Tama 0.50x Wide Angle Converter Macro together with SB600.

Macro @ Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park

December 30th, 2006 | Bob Tahar

Went to KL Butterfly Park to test my Sigma 28-300mm DG Macro Lens and my newly SB600 Speedlight. I can handle the lens but the speedlight quite tricky… need a lot to learn.

After doing this, now I know its a lot harder to snap a butterfly than to snap a dragonfly. The dragonfly even pose for you in different angle whereas, the butterfly just flew away when you get near.

Great place to bring along your family. Ticket RM5 for adult and RM1 for children. Open from 9am to 6pm. Tripod not allowed and RM1 for bringing in Camera.

Macro Test with Sigma DG 28-300mm Macro Lens

December 19th, 2006 | Bob Tahar

Just got me self a new lens, the Sigma DG 28-300mm Macro. These are my 1st attempts to shoot macro with this lens. The lens behave quite similar to Nikkor 70-300G Lens. This lens will replace my Nikkor lens due to its wide capabilities.

Use this lens mainly for sports, don’t know how its handle when shooting sports yet, hopefully as good or with its price tag should be better than the Nikkor 70-300G lens.
