Macro is the Bee's Knees.

So, I had always sort of scoffed at the typical flower or bug photo and thought they were simply cliche and boring, but I have a new perspective on this practice and area of photography now. After several days of walking around my yard with an old manual macro lens I have learned how enjoyable it can be and have decided that it’s the Bee’s Knees!

I went out today and was very interested in the rain dripping from the apple blossoms in the orchard. I only am somewhat bothered by the seemingly more apparent spots from my sensor needing to be cleaned while I use my macro lens. I am able to clean it up in post, but I do need to get that cleaned.

So, if you have never tried macro photography, and you ever wondered what all the fuss was about, It’s worth your time and will put a smile on your, and many other’s faces when they look at the photos you shoot through a macro lens.

Photography to some is a different way to look at the world around us. Macro photography is an even more different way to look at the world around you and will sometimes surprise even you. Sure, you could get a nice magnifying glass and lurk around the yard and see similar sights, but why not share the details you normally miss around you.
