Don’t Be Bashful

16 Mar

I’m always amazed (and envious) of the people who have an eye for macro photography. Primarily, though, because I definitely do not have that sort of talent or magic or luck or whatever it is that gives them such gorgeous photos. I try sometimes, though. Here is my best attempt at capturing my fern plant all close up and personal. I think she is bashful and just doesn’t want her picture taken. Even if I get one almost-semi-decent photo out of the bunch, I’ll usually call it quits, curse the gods for making me so non-versatile, and then take a walk outside to snap a few pictures that actually turn out. (Maybe the true story version doesn’t go exactly like that. You will never know. Well, I suppose there are ways of finding out that sort of information, but I’m currently out of applications for the stalker position. Sorry, folks. Maybe next year.)
P.S. I just had to tell you guys that I have two blog page design plans drafted, and I’m working on deciding which one I want to implement. It may still take a while, but an upgrade is in order.

    Macro photography is like anything else. The more you do it the better you’ll get at it. Your eye seems to be fine so just keep shooting. When I first started I spent two hours in my back yard and took 300 photo’s. Three were worth it, the rest not so much.

      Thanks for the encouragement! I’ll eventually have to find time to keep working on it.

      Well thank you! Its a Fujifilm FinePix F550EXR, and am still working on figuring some of the settings. I think it is a pretty alright little camera, though. (That doesn’t stop me from dreaming of having a DSLR or something fancy!)
