I love photography but I really have no idea what I’m doing …and I kind of like it that way. Photography for me is a source of constant discovery and experimentation. Unlike writing, there is no real inner critic when I take pictures. I can enjoy the thrill of taking pictures without the pressure to produce anything which is why it is one of my favorite stress relievers. These photos are a result of condensation getting caught between my lens and the macro filter. I kind of wish I had left it there longer. These were taken on my balcony.
I took these pictures with a +4 macro filter which I got for Christmas. Now, I don’t really know how to use it properly yet and am terrible about reading manuals etc. (0r maybe I just enjoy the adventure of trial and error–more error than anything) but I had so much fun taking these….and I think I’m starting to get the hang of it. A friend of mine who is better with the technical side of photography suggested I put the focus on manual and that made a huge difference.
I took these last year, before I had a blog but I really love these pictures. They were taken at a friend’s wedding a couple weeks before we got married and the memory is suffused with so much excitement and love and such anticipation. I’ll put more wedding pics on here later on but I thought these were appropriate because this is the kind of weather we’ve been having here in Deep Cove, BC. It is such a relief to finally see some unrelentingly sunny days!
