I'm Ingunn. This blog is about learning to make photos instead of just taking them. This is where I collect and express ideas and thoughts, and sometimes I might get sidetracked, too! There is so much to be learned. I have an urge for making life better, simpler and tastier. My picture galleries are in the sections travel and portfolio. I write in English, but I am Norwegian, and comments are most welcome in both languages.

First attempts at macro photography


My new macro lens arrived this morning, and I couldn't resist to give it a quick try on the lavender and cosmo outside, putting grading papers aside for a moment. There is no doubt that it will take time to master the technique, but as a first attempt I am reasonably satisfied with these shots. The colors are a lot richer than I could achieve with my ordinary zoom lens. Very shallow depth-of-field makes it incredibly hard to focus properly, so total control of the aperture is in order here, and I'm looking forward to experiment further during my holidays. Of course this lens is useful for other things as well, like portraits. This is going to be fun!
