What about having a separate image thread just for macro pictures?

Hope this will be followed, we can share our macro takes but also our questions, doubts, experiences...

In this one two pics superposed.

This was a real challenge with the 28 mm of the Q. Much easier with a 100mm macro and my Canon 5D3. It is obviously highly cropped. I'll have to try again someday with the fast shutter instead of with a flash. SF-40.

Splashart with the Q? I wouldn't have thought...I don't think the 28mm is appropriate. I had fun trying a whole afternoon but with my D800 and a 105mm macro...and the results were astonishing. Well, I am curious to see what you can get with a new try.

Wouldn't try either the fly's eye without a macro 105 and the tubes...

But there is a lot of things we can do on macro mode with the Q, and it would be fun to share it here.

Thanks Infiniumguy, have a nice week,

Isabel

I wouldn't think anyone would buy a Q just so they could pursue macro photography, but I do like that it has the feature, something different with the 28.  My first day which wasn't long ago I went in my backyard (that's American for "garden") in the late afternoon and took a bunch of shots including a few with the macro.  

 

Here's a couple.  This one is a leaf on our fig tree, and while it looks frontlit, the light is actually coming through the leaf.

Effectively nobody would buy a Q for macro, but I am surprised with what we can achieve with it...

I posted this in the main image thread, but it was taken with the macro lens setting. Purely opportunistic because I could easily switch to macro. Fun.

Check out Leslie Gleim of Honolulu for Leica Q (and XV) macro photography. This lady is leading the way for macro work with this new camera.
