My Entry for the Week

I really hoped to photograph flowers from my yard yesterday, but I was just too tired.  So you get to enjoy a few of my favorites from the last couple of years.

  3. Cee I have really enjoyed looking at all the different styles of flower photos in this challenge. Everyone is celebrating spring!! May I ask you what lens you use for your Macro? I know you can buy special macro lenses but I don’t have one and I know they are expensive lol. But the effect of macro photography is so beautiful!! I’ve done a very few that have turned out( and nicely) with my canon 18-55 mm. that’s it.

    1. I use all my lenses for macros. The focal point makes the biggest differences. If you zoom all the way to 55mm and get as close as you can…that can give you some good macros. Feel free to contact me with more questions or if you want more advice.
