The joy at looking at old pictures is realizing how much I have learned since. Looking through this file of images from 2011, I am pretty sure I broke every rule of macro photography–not enough light, too shallow depth of field, bad–BAD–focus, not using a tripod, and almost all of the images are centered composition (how boring). The first image is a water fountain in a public park, the next two were taken in my backyard and they were my ONE AND ONLY attempt at insect photography (I like my subjects to be a little bit more…still). Still they are “beautiful” images of otherwise ugly things (sinks and bugs–yuck as my 3 year old would say). Please continue the blog circle by visiting Narelle Bailey Photography next.
