About Me

My photo
In the last few years I have yearned for something more, something to push my creativity and challenge my mind. Through the 365 Project and Photography I have found a passion that has filled a hole in my heart. A sense of being and a meaning to my life. I hope my pictures live on forever even if only through my children and my blog.

#1 Macro

I got my close up filters Yesterday and of course had to play with them right away. I'm still learning how to use them, but love the results I'm getting. This 1st image is using the 2X filter. It is cropped to about 90% of the original, saturation upped a bit and sharpened.
1/160, f5.6, ISO 200

I was curious about how good the focus was with the new filters and how much I could crop and still have crisp details. So I cropped it and was amazed!
I would deffinitely recommend these filters!


  1. Your cropped shot is AMAZING!!! The filters were well worth your investment!

  2. Thanks! I'm still having some issues with the 4X, but I think if I keep at it I'll find the correct settings and distance to get the quality I want.
