New Macro Photography

New Macro Photography

I love macro photography, and capturing tiny details of plants and insects. I always find that it’s important to take photos for fun, as well as photography for work.

Recently, I bought an extender for my macro lens. This means I can get even closer to my subjects, and capture even more detail.

It will take time to get used to it but I’m loving the results already!

During the month of May, I began shooting more products and portraits for businesses. I also did my first car photoshoot which was a great experience.

Towards the end of May, I went camping with friends in Cheddar and switched off for a bit to enjoy nature.

Here are some highlights from this month:

World Bee Day

World Bee Day

So today is world bee day, a day of celebrating these amazing insects which do so much for the planet. I love photographing bees and try to get as close as possible without disturbing them. I’ve recently bought an extender for my macro lens and look forward to it arriving so I can try it out! Here are some bee photos I took last year during the summer, when they were out in an abundance.

April Highlights

April Highlights

April was a great month, I begun to get out a bit more and explore new places as restrictions eased. I also began shooting headshots again which is one of my favourite things to do. As well as photography, I organised a beach clean which is taking place in June on Bognor Beach.

It’s been a varied month, and I began to feel like things were becoming more normal as time went.

Here are some of my favourite photos I took throughout the month:

Chanctonbury Ring

Chanctonbury Ring

After going to Cissbury Ring, it was only right to visit Chanctonbury Ring too.

It was definitely a different experience to Cissbury Ring. This time, the walk started in a woodland area up a hill where I saw a grand tree with its roots exposed. Once up the hill I was greeted by lots of open space. There were many different routes, and I ended up walking about six miles, the trials seemed like they would never end.

Here are some photos I took on my walk, showing my favourite parts:

Bluebell Photography

Bluebell Photography

April is known for it’s abundance of bluebells, and I unfortunately missed them last year as I was working hard on finishing University. This year I’m going to be capturing as many bluebells as I can, and my favourite shot will be featured in my next yearly calendar!

Here are some photos from my first trip to a local park:

March Highlights

March Highlights

March was a great month for photography, and brought a range of new subjects to capture. More flowers began to bloom, I made some more DIY backdrops, and picked up an old project to carry on working on.

Here are some highlights from the month of March!
