Photography

Woods

This weekend I attended a macro-photography workshop taught by a well-known photographer, Don Komerechka. It was a fun, but challenging workshop and I learned just how creative Don is and how much I have to learn. My technique and skill are far from where I want them to be with macro photography, but I think I can improve my craft with patience and perseverance.

The workshop kept me quite busy, so I had very little time to photograph something new for the photo challenge. Around 6 P.M.Bhavna wife suggested we go for a quick walk in the woods of the Autumn Hill Preserve in Princeton. It's a five-minute drive from our home. I brought my camera with me, but after parking, I realized I had forgotten my camera card on the computer. I had pulled it out to download the images from the workshop and did not put it back. I had no choice but to use my iPhone 7.

We walked the trail in and out for about two kilometres. It seemed to us that the old trail had been replaced with a new one. We were happy about that. The old trail had a tendency to collect rainwater and get swampy. The new trail seems to be on more solid ground.

These are the best of the images from the walk.

    Particularly love the photo looking up to the sky and tree tops - also the daisies 🙂

      Thank you Judith. For some reason I thought these were chamomile. I'm still learning about North American plants.

    Lovely, Khurt. I've left my memory card so many times! My new camera has two slots,so that should help. Looking forward to more macro shots.
