Macro Attempts :)

I have owned a macro lens for several years, and have never once felt like I got an excellent macro capture with the dumb thing. I can’t figure out if it’s me, my lens, or my eyesight that sucks. I made it a personal goal to get better, though. Here are a few shots from the last couple of weeks where I was trying to be creative, but also really get a close up that I felt was sharp and detailed. I’m not so sure I’d call any of these GREAT photographs, although the praying mantis composition sure does make me happy :)

Why, hello there

    Horray, I’m so happy to another _good_ photographer near my area. (Well, you’re still a bit close to fabulous LA, but oh well you still count.)

    I love the bug shot, and I’m not a huge fan of bugs. Very good photos! These make me want to play with Nikon more…
