Lens-Artists Challenge #130: It’s a Small World

I love macros. They are so exotic and different and really only can be seen either with a magnifying glass, a dedicated macro lens, or in my case, a good ol’ regular camera lens with a screw-on macro filter. These filters are tricky to use sometimes as everything must be completely still and as you can see from the below photo, it only magnifies a specific area of the image while blurring the rest.

Since the pandemic began in March 2020, I had not had the opportunity to photograph with my macro lens filters as I was being driven by work and anxiety to the point I had somewhat lost my muse and inspiration to make photographs. I hope to make some in 2021 as it’s looking like spring might be coming early. Therefore, please enjoy some pre-pandemic photos. These photos were from the beautiful spring of pre-pandemic world of 2019.

Sunshine’s Macro Monday

Playing with Lightroom after watching a few videos on YouTube on how to make a subject pop. This is one of my favorite macros and I think with the adjustment, I achieved my goal of making my subject pop.
