“Turning Away” – Giving Your Macro Photography A Breather!

No matter if you live/breathe and consistantly put all of your efforts into a particular subject or style, … sometimes you simply have to take a break away from it and shoot something else. It frees up the mind and soul!
A couple of years ago, my youngest son and I went to the Congaree Swamp National Park early one morning and took a hike deep within the swamp.
It was hazy, a bit foggy in some areas, but better yet, … it was absolutely quite with only the sounds and tastes of nature.
Joseph sat down in a area that was overlooking one of the ponds, and enjoyed watching the turtles clamoring for the limited room on a log.
He has learned that silence can be so golden out in nature, and has also learned that there are times when it is very important to simply put the cameras down!

Next here is just a simple shot, with simple composition showing a nice flow of feathers.
Took this shot using the older Canon 75-300mm lens.

Yes, it feels good to get away from the norm and to try some other things.
I will be doing some studio shooting soon, which brings back some fond memories of a few years back, … and should be interesting since I will be doing it “my way”!
I feel those braincells churning again!!

  3. Thanks guys!

    As I said, sometimes it is good to simply put down the cameras and to enjoy your surroundings. In this case though, I just had to line up a shot.
    This image spoke volumes to me, especially while I was composing it through the viewfinder.

    The second shot is pure eye candy – especially the delicious colour!
