Day Nine in my countdown to the end of my first year of blogging brings me to September. In September, I bought a set of macro tubes. Although I had been able to get pretty close to my subjects and crop, my lens wasn’t fast enough to give me the shallow depth of field and bokeh I had been looking for in my macro photos. I hoped the macro tubes would be a relatively cheap solution to this problem. To experiment with this new addition to my tool bag I went into the garden.
I have been following the work of Karen McRae over the last year. Her photographs are exquisite and she has a truly artistic approach to macro photography. I have Karen to thank for the inspiration behind the pictures I took that day. If you haven’t already done so, I would really recommend a visit to Karen’s website, draw and shoot.
