I recently tried out my macro lens for the first time.

So much fun getting lost in the tiny details of life but so much to learn and I definitely need a tripod. I’m thinking of doing a course covering the basics of photography as I know nothing about manual settings and basic photographic language but there are so many out there- I’d really appreciate any advice from anyone with experience and opinions about good teachers and courses…

    Macro shots are so much fun. My poor old camera died, and you just can do that same with a camera phone, lol. I found that when I didn’t have a tripod handy, clicking the shutter on an exhalation was steadier than holding my breath. Learned that from a great pottery teacher for not knocking your pot out of center when you lift your hands off. Looking forward to more great pictures!

    Love macros! So much so I got told off for over-using the lens at Uni 😉 I DIDN’T CARE!!!

    I think the CAE courses are pretty neat, and comprehensively cover the basics and a bit beyond?

    Lovely photo’s, my favourite is the lichen but I have a soft spot for lichen. My sister does a lot of macro pictures with her iphone and a macro lens as well as her posh camera. Michaels on Elizabeth Street do good courses I believe, recommended to me by someone though I never got the chance to go.
