The Monthly Photo Competition at the Local Club

The Monthly Photo Competition at the Local Club

The theme at this month’s monthly competition at our local camera club was Macro Photography. It was an interesting collection of the usual subjects; bugs, coins, flowers, rings, and a few zippers. I tried to break away from the usual with a picture of my daughter’s eye. I was so surprised I was able to get her to sit still long enough as I hovered inches from her face with my big Nikon. She was a fantastic model and the resulting pictures were my favorites. Thanks Darling!

I took a unique approach with the match shot and boy it was hard to get. I had to enlist my son’s help to ignite the match and get the other match out of the frame before I snapped the shutter. It was an interesting setup. Maybe next year if the theme happens again I’ll try it again.

Happy Snapping to all my fellow photographers!
