The light is returning to the northern hemisphere, but we still have winter –
– which means the opportunities are less for us who love photography – or?
A great solution to the problem is close-ups or macro photography. Your own home is an endless source of motifs – and maybe a look into new worlds. So, this week’s challenge is Close-ups. Looking forward to your creative answers to this prompt!
You certainly don’t have to buy a macro lens – most cameras are good at close-ups. If you have a smartphone/android/iPhone – you will be surprised how easily you get good results.
But, last year I finally bought a macro lens – after a lecture by one of our best Swedish macro photographers. She recommended a TAMRON SP 90mm F/2.8. In this post, you are looking through that macro lens. (All photos except one – I guess you see which one…) As usual, click on the images to enlarge.
Let us see what I found when I ventured out into my flower pot, abandoned for the winter in my garden. Have a look down its frozen interior!
This is something of what I found:
And they are not only droplets – but frozen ones, lovingly held by the tiny plants.
Have fun with your close-ups and hope to see you soon – also stay tuned for Amy ‘s challenge next Saturday, March 2!
