A Matter of Perspective…

…can distort the sense of Scale.

I mentioned it a few weeks ago about wanting to do this, but between learning how to use a DSLR camera and my trip to Bannack, and all of the editing and posting, it has been difficult. But I did not forget! I finally was able to get a photo-shoot organized where I could do some Macro photography!!!

Thank You! 

I currently do not have all of the gear and add-ons for a macro-shoot, so a big thank you goes to Caryn Esplin for providing the necessary tools and tips to make this shoot even possible. She set up the location with all of the props, lights, lenses, and the needed filters. Check out her website (by clicking her name) and you won’t be disappointed!

The Macro Shoot

For this shoot, I wanted to capture some close ups on little random knick-knacks, as well as some cool effects of water on flowers and plants. Over the course of the last few weeks, I have been getting more and more away from using the automatic settings on the camera, and I finally stepped away from the auto focus. That being said, I ended up taking a lot of images, because I wasn’t entirely sure if I was going to be able to capture a sharp or clear enough close up of everything. I ended up with a lot of really successful images as a happy result! I would like to now present to you my top seven favorite images! And please leave me some of your thoughts about these images in the comments! I would love to hear what you think about them as well!
