"It's a Mac ... ro!"

"It's a Mac ... ro!"

Posted to Flickr on 25 December 2010.

This holiday season begins a new era in photography for yours truly. For Christmas my wife and children gave me my very first macro lens. Up until today I’ve done macro photography with magnifying lenses, never a macro lens.

So when our gift exchanging was over, I grabbed the nearest action figure, a four-inch Admiral Ackbar, started experimentig with the macro lens, and … wow … I’m gonna have some fun in 2011!


Admiral Ackbar has also been spotted here:

Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.


This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
