More Macro

I wrote a blog post for Chix That Klik.  It is a blog that three of us “Chix” from a Flickr group decided to do to help new photographers learn new things and to encourage each other in our photography.

My blog post was called the Macro Lens.  In it I discussed the macro lens in relationship to taking close up images of plants, weeds, and I have examples of shooting landscapes as well  I mention that the lens is a great portrait lens as well but have no examples.  I was inspired by my own blog post and decided to just leave my macro lens on my camera for a while and shoot many different images.

I used the lens for close-ups, portraits and just family photos.  I found it was the most difficult to capture action photos.

I began with shooting some close -ups one day while blowing dandelions away with my grandson.  I never get tired of close-ups.

Oops we missed one.

Taking a close look inside.

This image was taken with my grandson maybe a foot or two in front of the lens.  Very detailed.

This is an action shot and I had my camera on rapid fire.  The dof is narrow so hard to capture the action.

This image is maybe 30-40 ft away from me.

Had my camera on rapid fire again and took quite a few shots to capture the mechanical bird mid air.

Portrait.  Father and son.

The Princess who wore no clothes.

Portrait.  Purple princess.

As you can see, I took a variety of shots and they all came out well.  The clarity of the images from this lens is amazing.  I will definitely use this lens more often.

Thanks for stopping by!

About ~ ~ joanne.thomas.photographer~~

I am retired, starting a new career. I love shooting portraits. People are so fun and interesting--I try to bring out there personalities and capture them in images. Children are especially interesting little people, who love to tell you all they know and are so uninhibited. I enjoy shooting weddings to capture all the details and emotions of the day. Between photo sessions I keep shooting --to learn, to experiment--to create art. The industry is ever evolving and I want to give my clients the most exciting and lasting images, full of their love of life expressing their personality.
