Photography I love to take photos falling in love with taking them I love macro photography, close up shot of insects and so on. I love take photos of flowers and landscape. The photo I’ve enclosed I took a few weeks ago of Dragonfly. We hired a 100mm macro lens and had it for 10 days. Do you like taking photos?

Photography, animals, cat, nature, veronica, cats,
Love taking them.. Macro shots are amazing. I love taking pics lf animals and flowers.. and I get a few insects on the flowers as well try to get in as close as I can.. Macro photography is awesome.. it helps to have a good camera. This is one I took of my cat Veronica in the early morning light as steam was coming off the wood pile.

I do like taking photos, and I also like looking at them. I am not very good, but I must admit that I have had my moments where I actually think I took a good shot. I also like playing with the different formats on the same image to see how each one can affect the picture and how it "feels".

It's good to play around with the same image, looking at different sides and angles from which to take the photo from.

@kevin1877uk I also like playing with the black and white versus color versus sepia, etc. It is interesting how the same picture can look completely different with a slight color or lighting change.

I have a 90mm macro lens for my Nikons... love it! It makes a superb portrait lens, too. I got some shots of a cicada shedding its skin tonight. It's such a cool process to watch. And they're so colorful when they first emerge!

Here's another one. This is actually a different cicada that was shedding on the same tree. It was a little further along than the other one was, so its wings were already unfurled.

Yes, I love taking photos. I haven't done any macros for a while and must really have another go at them. I'm not too good with bugs though unless they keep really still.
