  1. I am always so happy to see macro photography as well as a photographer that likes to post about his equipment. I also like that you post multiple images with in a post and tell about what you are looking at, as well as where, what, why and when. so to speak.

    Unfortunately I have had to Un-Follow many photographers that send out 100 individual pictures as single posts, no description whatsoever. nothing that tells about what you are looking at. Don’t get me wrong, they have beautiful photography, however no substance. Sadly they have not learned that one post with pictures and a good description is worth a thousand words, whereas sending out hundreds of pictures as a single post, is very maddening in the inbox.

    Thank you so much for the beautiful photography and descriptions in your blog. One day I would love to get to Longwood Gardens! I live in the Shenandoah Valley near Harrisonburg, Longwood is so close yet so far.

    • Thanks! Macro photography has always been an interest for me, especially for some of my commercial work. But for my personal work it is always amazing to see ordinary everyday objects in a whole different extreme close up way. Between image stacking and other techniques such as resolution stacking it is amazing as to what you can do. In the future I am planning on doing more on this maybe as small technical how to guide blogs. My favorite images are butterfly wings at about 8X. Longwood Gardens is an amazing place to wander around. In the cold months the Observatory is great for macro subjects. In the morning you can use a tripod, you just have to get a sort of permission tag that goes on the tripod. I believe it is free. My favorite time is in the Spring and going through their large Meadow Gardens. Almost any day though you could fill your day with macro subjects.
