Practice Subject

One last shot of those flowers I bought as subject for my macro practice sessions.  However, this shot was taken from across the room with the telephoto lens instead of the macro.

I would have thought this was a macro. You had fun, and success, experimenting.

I agree thought it was the macro.

You are multi-talented! Macro, micro, nacho(s) ... oops, I don't think nachos was meant to be in that sentence!

Long lenses often work well for macro shots...the blur out the background nicely.

Have a wonderful week!

You now have the right equipment to take just about every shot you will want to try.

Telephoto lens - is it the one which is thick and long and heavy? You are a pro! Time for paparazziing now!))
