Today I started my photographic journey in the world of Macro photography. I went to the Photography Show at Birmingham some weeks ago and treated myself to a Macro lens. I have been wanting one for ages and it an area of photography I have always fancied doing as a hobby and with it comes new skills to learn.
The lens is also great for portraits and getting details shots for my baby photography and Weddings.
This is my first attempt with the lens. A tiny Millipede I found today in the woods. What amazed me was all the other smaller insects I could see on some of the photographs that I didn’t notice when I was shooting with the naked eye. Maybe I should wear my glasses next time!
Important Note to self.. take a mat to kneel on as the stingers are rather strong at this time of year and a light source in case the sun disappears behind the clouds as it did today!
