This has been a dreary wet weekend. Temperatures have been all over the board. That's Tennessee for ya. Last week we had temps in the low seventies and by Friday they were down in the thirties. West Tn got some snow but we, here in middle Tn, got rain and ice. I had so hoped to wake up to a couple of inches of snow on Saturday but that didn't happen. Just a yucky, blah day.
Most of today it has rained off and on. After church we came home and hubs took a nap and I, since the rain had let up, took a walk. As we were coming up the ridge from church there was some fog setting in and it was so pretty. So, as soon as we got home I packed up the camera and headed out. As usual though, when I got to my destination, just 4 miles from my house, the fog had pretty much lifted.
I decided I was going to try and focus mostly on some macro photography. I do not have a macro lens but I do have these incredibly cheap macro filters that I can stack on my lens. I've only used them a handful of times and I really do like the way the pics turn out.
Not bad, huh? So see, you don't have to spend a ton of money on equipment.
I'm going to try some more at home and use a tripod. I highly recommend using one when doing macro photography. You have to find the sweet spot when focusing and it is difficult to hold the camera steady enough. I think I just lucked up on these. I was literally holding my breath when I would hit the shutter button. I can't tell you how many times I got too close and hit the branch. It just takes practice though, like all the rest of it.
Well, I hope whomever is reading this has a great week. Stay warm!
