I learned some lessons on my photography expedition yesterday. I finally discovered how to use the macro setting on my camera! But here's what I learned:

  • stray off the beaten path, go down the road less traveled, less likely to be disturbed
  • don't get too close to the subject, let the camera work for you

These might be minor things, but to me they were huge. Staying away from the subject and letting the camera zoom was very difficult for me. It went against everything I wanted to do, and I had to keep reminding myself. Straying off the beaten path, that part was pretty easy for me. I love to wander off the path, to see what exactly I can find. I'm almost always pleasantly surprised when I do.

Today will be another photo taking expedition in the same place as I did yesterday. Then some photo editing, and hopefully I will make a set of coasters from macro shots. And I'm going to make more pendants.
