I have recently been exploring the use of my macro lens to focus on colour and form. To me it is about painting with photography. Here is an example.
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
