Macro Fun


I’ve been trying to extend my range as a photographer, but my budget wont allow me to buy any more lenses just yet. However, I was able to afford a lense extender (Canon EF12 11) that does convert my 35-85mm to a macro lense. I realise I have a lot to learn about macro photography. It takes discipline and science…. and much more attention to background and lighting. I will need to be a lot more patient. The trouble with nature,also, is that it wont keep still!

You can see some really good macro photography here… or search for ‘macro’ on WordPress.

These are some of my early attempts…..

  1. I think this is how we all start, effort each week is how we get better. Believe me I know my first shots were much worse than this 🙂


  2. I love macro photography, great shots.


  3. Love the dragonfly, colours are beautiful.
