Butterfly Portrait 2D by Zx30
Butterfly Portrait 2D

Behind the scenes

www.macroandcheese.com/behind-…

This is a prime example of why I always keep most of my raw files;Sometimes you just accidentally look over some shots. This image was taken about nine months ago, and I accidentally overlooked it as I was so busy editing the original Butterfly Portrait that I forgot about looking at the rest. Also, I've recently noticed a trend of GIFS being shown with 2 white bars to give the illusion of a 3D image/scene. It's really incredible what to simple white lines can do. In fact, I showed my fiancee these 3D gifs and it was the first time her eyes have been able to see 3D. It felt very special to be able to give her that opportunity. =]

If you'd like to see those GIFs that inspired this image, google search '3d gifs white line'

Caterpillar Portrait by Zx30
Caterpillar Portrait

One of the things I love about Macro Photography is the ability to find a subject anywhere, even as close as your own home. The problem is, Macro Photography isn’t always predictable. You may find a creature around your home one day, and other days you may not. They may cooperate one day and the next not. And what if you want the same bug every time? Don’t you wish you could sometimes take a break and predict where your creature will be with 100% accuracy? Well that’s why I began raising Monarch Caterpillars. Here’s a lovely fellow just a day before he became a Chrysalis.

This photo was taken with two Einstein 640Ws, Canon 6D, Canon MP-E Macro lens zoomed in to around 3x-4x, and two ~60” umbrellas. I know some of this equipment may be overkill, but that’s the advantage of being home. Set it up, and continue to use the same set up every day.

For more photos of this fellow and his friends growing up, visit macroandcheese.com/raising-monarch-caterpillars/

I'm expecting! by Zx30
I'm expecting!
So I'm 26 now, soon to be 27, and there's going to be a ton of changes to my life this year. First of all, I'm engaged and secondly, my amazing fiancee and I are on the market of buying a house to call our home. Because of these two major and also beautiful life changes, I'm currently also finding ways to stay home more often so I can be closer to Veronica while I continue to enjoy my hobbies. In the past, I would always get my gear together and take it away from home to explore the wilderness and see what I can find. While, I won't stop doing that entirely, I'd like to reduce it in the future for the sake of growing our marriage. This picture you see before you is an effort to accomplish this mission. We now have Milkweed plants at home and the Monarch butterflies have already responded. So far, there's 3 eggs and 2 of these eggs have already hatched(Pictures of those to come soon!) We are very excited to bring you the progress of these little guys in the future. I hope you enjoy!

Growing Up
Visit www.macroandcheese.com for videos and articles on how I captured my photos and other techniques that could help you improve your craft!

I found this little guy on my Nature Center walk today resting on a plant. After introducing my hand next to him, he freely climbed aboard and began to get comfortable. He stopped at the top of my finger and for a few seconds before crawling around the rest of my hand. It was the first time a lizard had ever crawled on me so it was a fun experience! Grow up big and strong little guy! =]
