So much fun getting lost in the tiny details of life but so much to learn and I definitely need a tripod. I’m thinking of doing a course covering the basics of photography as I know nothing about manual settings and basic photographic language but there are so many out there- I’d really appreciate any advice from anyone with experience and opinions about good teachers and courses…

    I recently did an introductory course at the CAE. They have quite a few.

  2. Macro shots are so much fun. My poor old camera died, and you just can do that same with a camera phone, lol. I found that when I didn’t have a tripod handy, clicking the shutter on an exhalation was steadier than holding my breath. Learned that from a great pottery teacher for not knocking your pot out of center when you lift your hands off. Looking forward to more great pictures!

    Love macros! So much so I got told off for over-using the lens at Uni ;) I DIDN’T CARE!!!

    I think the CAE courses are pretty neat, and comprehensively cover the basics and a bit beyond?

    I love messing around with my macro lens :D. I took a class from dreadsci’s husband (http://stalbertphotoclasses.com/wp/) that was really awesome. If you wind up wanting to take a class, I’d recommend him as a teacher.

    Lovely photo’s, my favourite is the lichen but I have a soft spot for lichen. My sister does a lot of macro pictures with her iphone and a macro lens as well as her posh camera. Michaels on Elizabeth Street do good courses I believe, recommended to me by someone though I never got the chance to go.

    I recommend you join your local camera club.
