Before: This first photo was taken in 2010. I was trying out my macro setting on the camera and was enjoying how much detail I could capture in the weeds and yet how blurry I could get the background.
After: This is my new favorite recent picture. It was taken at Lincoln Brick Park back in January 2013 when we got out to enjoy above freezing temperatures and some fresh air. I love how much detail there is and how warm the colors are.
Again, I used the macro setting in the this shot. I like how I used the treeline in the second one and how it’s much brighter as well. I would say that you can see a big improvement in my technique.
Back in January we had exceptionally balmy winter weather and now in the early spring of late March it has been exceptionally cold. I may call Michigan and Ontario home but I’m ready to be done with my winter coat and start enjoying some warm sunshine again! Anyone else agree?
