I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Getting Closer

After holding my breath last week, I decided it was time for more. More holding my breath, more macro till I'm cross eyed. And this is a pretty good cross section of the methods available to me. The first one I took with the reverse lens macro technique, using my slightly broken 50mm and my 55-250 on the camera. This method is hard! And it makes me strain my eyes trying to figure out what's in focus. But there is something I do really like about the shot below, so maybe it's worth it.

This one I took using the Lensbaby Composer and the +4 macro lens.

The last two are the Composer and the +10 macro. Turns out that the +10 is a lot easier to use if there's enough available light. I took these mid-afternoon in open shade - some of my favorite light.

There's something about yellow and dark blue that just gets me as a color combination. Maybe that's why I like these shots so much.

But it's weird, even looking at them makes me feel a little out of breath! Maybe I should really start using my tripod.

Anyway, you might see a few more macro shots from me in the future, so be prepared!


  1. Holding your breath truly works...these all are sensational...I'm breathless just from the sheer beauty of these! :) I also love your butterfly shot (that page is down)...I just shines with color!


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
