So I got my new Macro tubes for my camera. I decided test them out. Here are some of my stay still subjects. The one dragonfly on the stones flew close and stayed there. I think he wanted his picture taken.

Marcos are more about the fine detail catch.

Pink buble looking things are apple snail eggs.

The lizzard on the wall was trying to play the "You dont see me, you dont see me, Im hidden!"

Tashi Yes.

Heari.. I do not consider myself a pro at all. (P.S. gear does not make a pro, its the shots they take. I've seen people with well more then I've invested turn out crap photos time after time. (I'm well over 4k into my building collection) (Second this was my FIRST time using macro tubes and frankly I was figuring out how each lens handled.)  I have been shooting photography since I was 13. I'd say I had years to go before I go pro. I have a family shoot I'm doing in a week for a lady I met in the park, after she saw what I did with her two kids, she asked if I would. *shrugs* I'd say I have another 5 ten years before I go pro. I do it for love of the shot at the end of the day.

Those shots were not in anyway to say here's my best, judge me.  This is not even close to what I've put out. I work for what I do. I put it here to share. Not every flower, leaf or dragonfly is going to be everyone's cup of tea. Art is a reflection that the artist is putting out there. Photography is no different.

I don't know crap about photography....I try to see it...but I just don't

I can appreciate the skill it takes to get the right shot....the angle, light, frame, content, and all that....but as for what makes a shot more beautiful than another....or more artsy....I just don't have that


:(

That's okay Misrek. It's not for everyone and honestly I go through phases. Sometimes it's all photography, others it's all song writing.  And then desperate times call for drawing.

Thanks Goodard=)

I wish I could math.

I went through a phase where I was making abstract digital art with photoshop.  Once or twice a year I've been going to a state park to take photos, maybe this weekend I'll post some up.

I'd like to do more photography, but I rarely have the time (which is fleeting) and motivation (which is more fleeting) line up at the same time.

Do you go anywhere special to take photos, Bek?

Honestly depends on the mood honestly. I like to go to places a lot of people do not think to go. Like "Big Talbot Island" out by me. Everyone likes Little Talbot Island because its a big draw to birds. I did a water drop shoot about a month ago to catch how dye moves through water which can be done in the home. (Though did require 10 bucks for the square fish tank to hold the water, rounded bowls dont work well.)  


Photography to me is a bit harder now because everyone wastes shots with their phone. (Dont get me started on that rant) They just snap crazy, without really thinking of putting together shots. Snap enough you'll get a good one is the motto most people use today.


But if I had to pick a special place over all. One with lots of different flowers and bugs. =) I love love love being able to sit and wait for bugs to land on the right flower. =) What about you when your in the mood for photography?

I find myself going to state parks or other natural landscapes.  If I remember after work, I'll post some stuff up.

Museum is a public area, so rehosting screenshots isn't revealing anything people couldn't see anyway. Just wanted to point out that formatting your text makes it really difficult to read:

I thought the Museum was members only? As for the formatting sorry. That was a copy paste issue.
