School Holidays

So it's school hols and I have been playing with my sons Lego!! Wanted to practise getting nice sharp macro/close ups as that seems to be my downfall. This time I used tripod (naturally), self timer and mirror up with a time delay to ensure the camera was dead still. Here are the results, used various lenses.

Honourary Winner Macro Contest

Well I might as well blow my own trumpet... I got honourary winner in the macro competition on ViewBug. Unfortunately 'honourary' didn't win me the cash prize but was the first contest I entered on that site so mustn't grumble eh?! This was the photo in question:

Had some macro fun today using my D300 and Tamron 80-210mm with extension tube to get me nice and close. Experimented with oil and water with food colouring in it... Not as sharp as I would have liked but that's life! Played a bit with lego.. have seen lego used in macro shots before, quite effective so might have another go at that.

A couple of photos from last years Fringe Festival. Just been going through them and decided to process a few that I wasn't going to bother with.
