Things I have learned through this side challenge:

1) The focal plane in macro photography is very small
2) The amount of light available is low
3) If you walk around the house with a macro lens, you find you really didn't dust as well as you thought
4) Insects don't pose for very long
5) Wildlife goes far beyond the large animals
6) Macro photography can make cotton balls look interesting
7) Bugs really do have many eyes
8) ...and hairy butts
9) Macro photography can give you poison ivy
10) There are little people all around us running the world, we just can't see them without a macro lens
11) Windy days suck for macro photography
12) A flash is your new best friend when shooting closeup
13) You can measure down to less than 27 µm
14) Pollen is sticky
15) Joining a SC can make you spend money

I think that sums it up for me.


Where the hell is the "like" button around here? :)

Thanks for the laugh...

Cheers,
-Cory

I think that sums it up for me.


AMEN!!!

Ahh, well... I suppose yes, you still are... And indeed, I fear I may soon fall into the same classification. Dang you Matt!

Jun 30 - Playing with fire

Making a macro a day wasn't as easy as I thought in the beginning, but I liked it, and I need a break:) Thanks for sharing all your beautiful photos

I know the SC is over, but it inspired me to pick up a "new" lens on eBay for my buggy macros. So far I like it a lot :-) Same technique I was using with my 50mm but I don't have to get quite so much in the little bugs' faces with this lens.

you copy the number of your picture, in this case 896965 and you put in the second option from right to left
