I've been experimenting and learning some with my macro lens. Can I just say that thing weighs a ton? But look at the beauty it produces. To see the whole set go here.
When I left my fancy lady busy busy corporate lady job last December, I said I wanted to do more gardening, photography and to have a life. Looking back on the posts from this summer, I feel like I'm totally accomplishing that. And I've gone into business for myself. I have a nice little handful of clients, all whom I love, who keep me busy enough and I actively engaged with them in a way that feels healthy and productive. And I'm able to travel, walk my dog, and learn new things like how to take macro photos. On the macro photo part, I have a whole lot more to learn, I know that. Things like selective focus and better control of lighting--I've only been able to do studio set ups with the macro, no on-site shots since it requires I'm using a tripod, and outside wind makes it super hard. But you know what's really cool? I've already worked macro photography into my job and did some for a client. Love it when that happens.
Sometimes it's so easy to fly through life and not feel you're accomplishing anything. Since I've vowed to be more present in my life, I see I'm accomplishing what I put out there to the world. And lists always help.
