Happy New Year!


For Christmas I received a macro lens. My New Years Resolution is to learn to use it…hopefully, eventually well.

In January I will be posting some macro photos as I take them. I imagine they won’t be perfect. I have already found the shallow DOF a challenge. It seems that without a macro specific flash I am struggling to get enough light to get the depth needed to focus on an entire object. Until I work that one out and put together a dodgy homemade reflector for my flash, I will just have to try to focus on parts of things. The light issue also means that even the images I think look sharp are in fact blurry on close inpection.

Sharpness = my ongoing obsession

Nothing gets past the macro lens! This fly tried, but only managed to make its wings look beautiful.
