Never Stop Learning
One of the things that I really love about photography is that it is always changing and there is always something new to photograph. I never stop learning. One of the photographers that I follow is Mike Moats of Tiny Landscapes. I love his work because I like doing macro photography as well. He often will post "How To" articles on his daily blog.He did one fairly recently on photographing water drops on glass. You can take a look here, http://tinylanscapes.wordpress.com/2013/08/22/glass-rainx-flower-water-and-shoot-2/ by cutting and pasting this into your browser. He is a fantastic photographer. Here are a couple results from my second attempt at it. The distance the flowers are from the glass is really crucial. I found that with my macro lens a distance of about an inch and a half was just about right.It was another aspect of photography that was fun to learn. Now how to manage to get my cat to stay that same distance under the glass for me!
God's blessimgs to all,
