New Macro Lens, yay!

Experimenting with my new macro lens...today was cold but I headed down to the beach for a bit...


Yep, I can definitely see myself becoming obsessed with this lens. Also now I can experiment with making my own textures, which I've been wanting to do for awhile.

After the tide started to hit my shells I whisked away my bag and moved to higher ground...
While I was there I met a nice lady and her dog who asked if I would take some portraits of her with the dog at the beach. I agreed that we would set something up sometime this spring...how sweet! He was a very friendly bichon frise wearing a sweater...I would have taken a pic of him, but I'll save that for our photo session. Plus, he was kinda shy. Happy Weekend!

Yea! Macro is so fun. I esp. love the last image, with the sand on the bottom. It looks so beautiful magnified.

I love these shell photographs, it looks like you are enjoying your new macro lens. I listened to a Macros Photography seminar, and I am amazed at how much you can do with it. Have fun! C
