The world of Macro!

Sunday, the family and I decided to visit some friends at a cookout. They have a sizable amount of land so I brought along some of my equipment with the hopes of breaking away for a short time. What happened always seems to happen… The clouds moved in and stole the sun. That day however, it was good thing. I was smart enough to bring my Macro equipment.

Prints available for sale at eldridgestudios.com starting at $50.00

The nice thing about cloudy days is the clouds become a massive light source which softens the typically hard sunlight lowering the contrast. This allows for a much larger range of color capture.

I walked around for a good hour and a half just having a blast. Don’t ignore the seemingly small world of Macro especially on cloudy days. Macro photography can really open up a whole new world. Enjoy!!


  1. Love Macro World, I will love to get some instructions from you, like I said in flickr, just a couple of month with my new REBEL T2i and just a 50mm 1.4 lens, and reading a lot from the internet and a couple of books , but love to have a hand to guide me?. I am in Kendall eld53@hotmail.com, Thanks in advance

  2. I would be very happy to help... I never turn down an opportunity to talk about photography! I will shoot you an e-mail tonight. Feel free to send me one as well. My e-mail address is located on the righthand side under my profile...
