My photography had a new door opened to me today as I received my very first macro lens in the mail. I ordered it using Christmas money I received and I couldn't be more excited as I have been wanting a lens like this for a while. It really does give me that much more to be able to photograph!
But first and foremost, I have my photograph from last night, taken before I actually got my macro lens. Jess went to bed fairly early last night and as I had not taken a picture of the day yet and I wanted to go watch tv in bed with her, I took to the camera to the bedroom to find something to photograph. I had been thinking of shooting the towel hooks for a while, but always found something better to shoot or totally forgot they were there. Last night was my opportunity.
That brings me to my macro lens. UPS dropped it off around 11:00 today, but work kept me busy until nearly 6:00 PM and I didn't really get to play with the camera anywhere near as much I would have liked. The colored pencils below were near my work desk and I took a quick photo of them. I think it came out fairly well, but I know a tripod would have made the picture a little crisper. I blame work for making me take a quick photo.
I took a few more photos of other random things around the house and am pretty excited of the possibilities. It's a whole new ball game!
