Learn by Doing Photography #23 – Macro Photography
Macro is one of my favorite ways to shoot, I didn’t even have to leave the house for this weeks assignment instead I looked around for some freshness and found some lemons and tomatoes to play with.
For these pictures I tried something different. I bought a light tracer awhile back for a different project and thought I would give it a try this week and see what happened. It was fun, it’s not very big only about 12 x 12, but plenty big for a single slice of lemon.
The light came up from the bottom so I didn’t need any flash or external light. Not sure what to try next on there, maybe some rice? I don’t know, any ideas?
You don’t have to shoot on a light tracer or anything just get as close as you can to your subject!
