Since my 365 project for this year went a bit ‘waa-waa’ I’ve been looking for something to get me back into picking up my camera every day. Anything.
So I went digging through my draws to find something. Anything. A prop. Whatever. Then I found something. You know those things that you buy because you think they’re absolutely amazing and you’ll never not use them?
My Raynox add-on lens was one of these things. I bought it waaay back when I had a bridge camera. So much fun! Then it got tossed in the draw and never got used.
I dug it out recently and decided to have a play around with it. Instantly I was reminded at how tricky it was to use. Lots of wobbling. (Yes, I know I should really be using a tripod, but was going to see if I could get away without one.) I wanted to get some photos of creepy bugs and the sort, but it chucked down raining and all the bugs ran away.
Macro photography is hard. Especially when it’s just a little bit breezy and your subjects keep on shifting. Though, I do rather like it.
