you capture: red

I played with my macro lens and some valentine’s candy this week.  I need lots more practice with my macro.  It requires a much smaller aperture (larger number) than I’m used to in order to get good sharp focus.

I’m going to try some photos of conversation hearts, too.  That is, if my kids don’t eat them all first.

  3. Amy, Sometimes I use placemats, but most of the time I use scrapbook paper. I have plenty and it seems I'll never get around to actually scrapbooking so at least I found a use for them!

  18. So I see I'm not the only one who found another use for her neglected scrapbook paper! :)
