Some of you who have been following the past several weeks may think I only photograph flowers. However, I do photograph more than flowers. Macro is my passion when it comes to photography and I can usually find something to photograph wherever I am. Years ago when I first started becoming interested in learning how to shoot close-up, I bought HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH Close-ups in Nature by Nancy Rotenberg and Michael Lustbader. I was immediately hooked on macro photography.
Unfortunately Nancy is no longer with us. She passed away in 2011. You can see her photos at Natural Tapestries. Is that not an incredible name for a website? She use to teach macro photography on her farm in Pennsylvania. Being one of her students was something I had dreamed about, but it only remained a dream . Maybe someday I’ll have my own “farm” and teach macro photography. That would certainly be a dream come true!
“We must remember to slow down – to take little bites – to savor the pleasure while finding ways to meet the cravings.” ~ Nancy Rotenberg
The above butterflies were all photographed in captivity at Butterfly Wonderland.
