I don’t usually like to follow a photo set with another photo set, but I have many flower pictures that I’ve really wanted to share. I wish I had shared them several months earlier when I took them!
The camera that I’ve been borrowing isn’t just a basic camera body with the usually-included lens, it’s a camera owned by a friend who takes photography semi-seriously and has all sorts of gadgets and lenses. One of the lenses is a macro lens. To me, “macro lens” was like a magic word. Most of the things that I regularly like to take pictures of, like dolls, toys, and food, are well suited to macro lenses. My friend had told me that flowers were good practice as well, so I tried my best to take many, many flower pictures to try.
I’m not a fancy-schmancy photographer, but I had a lot of fun and wound up with a few pictures that I am very proud of~
I took so many pictures of flowers that I created an entire set on my Flickr: Botanic Garden Floral. I tried to weed out any that were particularly bad or unskilled, but I’m not yet at the point where I can critique my own attempts very accurately. I can only hope-hope-hope that I’ll get better with more practice!
