Outside Insight

Sometimes it's good to just mess around with your equipment and see what happens. Who knows, you may learn something...

I was working in the office this morning; doing some straightening up and organizing. I noticed the light coming in the windows; my favorite type, northern light.

I grabbed my camera with whatever lens was attached; it happened to be my newest addition, the Tamron 90/2.8 Macro. Deciding not to try and bother with anyone else this morning, I figured to get myself (or part of myself) as my subject.

Having a fascination with the detail in the human eye; I wanted try and capture mine in a way that would show the detail. I think I accomplished that, including grabbing some details from the neighborhood at the same time.

What did I learn? Shooting a self portrait can be difficult; trying to shooting a self portrait with a macro lens can be frustrating, trying to capture the fine details in one's own eye using a macro lens might be enough to cause one to look for another hobby!

Kidding of course...

Have a great day! - Ed
