Macro @ FRIM

FRIM located in Kepong, Malaysia is the location for a macro outing held recently by MyChiarosuro forum led by member Benten. It was a great outing with fellow members Benten, simplyrobin and mwky. All armed with macro lenses and off shoe flash equipment. I do not have a macro lens so I made do with an extension tube, manual focus and lots of back ache. The effort was not wasted as I was rewarded with the pictures below.

The rest can be found here. All images taken using Olympus E-3 with ZD 14-54 f2.8-3.5 Mk II lens, EX-25 extension tube and off shoe FL-50 flash via FL-CB05 flash cable.

National Flower

Come 31st August, Malaysia will be celebrating its 53rd birthday. Therefore, it would befitting to capture our national flower, the Hibiscus, in a show of patriotism. Well, sort of.
