Shooting Macro

This morning I a took a macro photography class at the Desert Botanical Gardens. I like the idea of going in very close, but some of the set ups we were shown today were way more elaborate than I can imagine going. Also, getting close means getting  down on your knees and even down on the ground. I might have enjoyed that kind of thing decades ago, but the ole knees aren’t up to that now. So, it’s not a kind of photography I’ll likely pursue beyond taking shots my existing tripod will all me to stage, but I did take a few shots during the class that I like. Also, while I am not ready to quit my day job, the photography instructor said I “have an excellent eye.”

Someday I’ll learn to use editing software to clean up my pictures, but for now these are untouched.
