Macro photography is just is too fun

Published January 2nd, 2012

I keep trying to make myself play with something other than my macro lens (ok, maybe I could have phrased that better), but I can't, it is just my crack. Every time I grab the camera just to goof off with some shots, I inevitably grab the macro lens and it seems to stay on all the time.

It's great as it works as a nice portrait lens in my opinion, so it is well suited for those shots too, but all of my immediate inspiration seems to be in the form of looking at the smallest things I can to get a unique capture of the small details.

I'm not sure if I should just run with it as it seems to be where my eyes want to be, or if I should keep fighting myself to use other lenses and keep finding different mediums and compositions to expand myself..

Either way i am having fun, so I guess I'm not too concerned :)

Excellent shot of a creepy creature ;-)

Great shot, Bill! If macro is inspiring you now, just go with it. Sooner or later your 'vision' may or may not change but don't worry about it.
