I hadn’t read it since college and thought it was time for a re-read. I picked up a used, 1982 edition, while, though dated, was more recent than the version I had in college back in the 1970s. While I’ve been picking through the book, I’ve also found a little time for some shooting, though not too much.
Spent a few hours yesterday experimenting with Canon’s 100mm macro lens that I got last summer. The fall leaves inspired me and I want to work on my technique. I’m finding macro to be more of a challenge than I expected (balancing the narrow depth of field, shutter speeds and avoiding motion blur). It looks so easy, but at least for me, it’s not.
I’ve also been spending some time trying to update the main Unfocusedmg.com website. Adding a section that I’ll be calling “Cheap Shots” which will replace the “Modern World” section. Hope to have something up shortly.
