macro photography – developing my skills

I wrote a few weeks ago about getting to grips with macro photography and posted a set of pictures which you can see here.

It’s certainly tricky to get used to what it takes to get a good macro picture, and making sure the light is right is quite a challenge for me at the moment, and whislt I’m reasonably happy with my early macro pictures I know there is plenty of scope for improvement.

For those of you that might have an interest in the gear that I am using: the camera is a Canon EOS 90D and the lens is a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG Macro HSM.

I have posted some more recent macro pictures (taken in our garden at home) in the gallery that is set out below the links to recent posts (scrol down for the gallery).
