My new passion

20130610-215031.jpg

Macro photography. I recently bought a Macro lens for my long underutilized Canon 550D DSLR. I had previously thought of it as a white elephant that sat around in the house and was grudgingly bought along on trips only to be returned to its drawer unused and unopened. It was often far easier to use the iPhone or our other point&shoot camera.

That all changed when I joined Instagram. Inspired by others’ great pictures which I couldnt get, I decided to invest in a cheap, used lens to try out my hand at getting those amazing, super zoomed, larger than life pictures. It quickly became an obsession, with me heading out at the crack of dawn almost everyday to go on shoots. Will be posting some of the results as the days go by.
