As you may know I am not one for macro photography. So much so that I received a challenged from another photographer in the Arcanum to shoot macro shots to put me out of my comfort zone. Shooting macro if fun but very frustrating at the same time. I was trying to create compositions that would normally work on a larger scale in architectural and landscape shots but sometime that just didn’t work. I ended up having to think about simple objects in a complex way and think of compositions that would concentrate on finding the large beauty in small subjects.
I do think I was slightly hindered by the lens. My focal distance was about 2 foot so I relied a lot of photoshops enlarge tools to actually make something of the images. I think you cant skimp on a macro lens if you are going to concentrate on macro.
