I must have tried to photograph strawberries a dozen times.  I think previous attempts were done at night with a flash.  This came from natural light and looks pretty good. 

Canon EF 100mm f2.8 USM Macro lens
Exposure 1/10 sec @ f2.8
ISO 800
Aperture Priority
Curves adjusted for contrast

Love the little hairs. Always have! ;-)Did you eat them after immortalising them so well?

It's an excellent photo and yeah I'll bet that a flash causes too much flair. Your macro shots are good, you should put on some insect repellent and get into the woods.

I just had ice cream and strawberries this weekend. It was delicious! Nice photo!

WOW! That is an amazing shot!
Reach around, pat yourself on the back and say "Attaboy, Woody!"

BTW - that strawberry has more hair on it than «Louis» does on his head...

Very well done macro of the strawberry. It looks so juice and plump that those seeds might just shoot off! I hope you ate it when you were done photographing it!

Marilla said...
