week of 6/27 to 7/4 - M is for MACRO

Ok sorry for missing the post last week everyone.  I (Edie) had a couple of personal matters that came up that took priority.  We are going to finish off the "M" this week, and then next week pull a double duty and have 2 topics for "N".

This week we choose MACRO as the theme.   For Corinna and I, macro images are one of our favorite photo techniques.   Its a great way of seeing the details in something that you might not have noticed before, and it gives you a new perspective on your subject as well.     Some people use a macro lens when shooting their images. (as Corinna and I did).  Macro lens are great because they really let you get close to the subject.   However if you do not have a macro lens, no worries.  Most cameras have a "macro" setting on the camera.  Usually is on a button or dial, and it is represented by the image of a flower.   If you haven't used that setting before, I highly recommend you give it a try and practice on all sorts of things.

Cant wait to see what everyone comes up with! :)  

Oh and dont forgot you can click on the photo if you want to see a bigger image.
