Macro Life



18 shared thoughts

Ever since I had my first camera I became more fascinated with macro photography. When I got my first dslr (would you believe I managed to buy one because of blogging? Yes, I did..and I was - still am! - soooo HAPPY!) it came with the kit, so getting macro shots was quite frustrating. I guess hubby saw my frustration, and that's why he got me my own macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens). Not immediately, though..since it was/is quite pricey (for us, anyway. lol). We got the macro lens only after a couple or so of dslr changes later. :)

It's my fave among the few lenses that we own (we only have 3, lol). Right now, am hoping for one of those wide-angle lenses (the 10-22mm, maybe?)...but am not going to cry my heart out if we don't get one this year. I still LOVE my 100mm! :D

Haha, I feel for you. :)
When I got my first digital camera, I immediately studied how to do macro shots! :)
And I agree that it is indeed one of things to be happy about. Haha. :)

nice macro shot, beautiful! sana meron din ako macro lens but I love landscape photography more so I guess I'll save for wide-angle lens first. ;)

Like Luna, am also interested in earning through blogging, pwede paturo din ako. :D

@LM: salamat! naku, todo talaga ung paid posts ko noon! AS IN! pero those were the days when google wasn't so strict (minsan i got a total of US$1K per month!!!). ngayon kasi mas marami na blogs so mas malakas na competition. pero go pa rin! :)

@AG: HI!!! kmusta na? Missed ya! :)

@Czjai: salamat po. :)

@Marge: thank you! :)

@PW: ay, oo. if you like landscape, then go for the wide angled lens! don't forget to buy filters, too!
regarding how i got my first ever dslr through blogging..well, intense blogging talaga. yup, join lang ng join ng mga paid post sites; pero like what i mentioned to LM, those were the days when google wasn't as strict. ngayon kasi iba na. pero kaya mo parin yan, if you really set your mind (and heart) into it. :)

salamat sa pagbisita, ladies!
