I took my new macro lens for a test drive yesterday. Little T and I dropped in to my mom’s house, she’s got a beautiful well kep yard and lots of pretty flowers. What I learned on Day 1…..I should have taken my tripod with me, I need to buy a remote for my camera and the wind is not my friend. Ok, but the sun is slightly more my friend with macro photography than portraits, so that’s good. I am a little embarrassed to post these, because well, I know they aren’t that good. But, everyone has to start somewhere and this will be a good point of reference to come back and look at as I grow and learn about the big, er, I mean little, world of macro.
First and foremost, I know I need to work on my depth of focus. An f/stop of 4.0 is very different at this close range! Most of these are just processed it raw, cropped and sharpened for web. I’m already craving better color, better focus, more detail….
Thanks for stopping in =) Check back soon, I had an awesome session yesterday with a gorgeous teenager in New Orleans and will be posting a few pics soon….
