I listened to this podcast on macro photographyA photography podcast (no video). Focused on Chicago. with Mike Moats and a few of these pictures are based on trying out some things that were mentioned- mainly trying much higher f-stops. I usually shoot close to wide open. The shift from shooting around 2.8 and lower to around 10 to 15 is considerable. Tripple portrait. I like the faces on both the dogs.
I needed a bit of redemption after last week’s pitiful showing. As a result, I spent a good bit more time in the morning and wandered back to some areas on Broad Street that I’d been neglecting. A random high school tour group was coming through our building. I got the chance to divert them into the maker space area. It probably ruined their entire schedule but they had a blast. This is one young lady using Jamie Mahoney’s letter press (which was a huge hit). This was a bit of a joke based on an image David found but when you run across a welcome mat in an alley . . . The video game learning area with Enoch Hale was a popular space. I just liked the color and geometry of this one. I thought they were taking a selfie. She saw me taking the picture and it led to an interesting conversation with both of them. Turns out they were showing pictures of their pets. I would have two more stranger portraits but it’s a company policy that they aren’t allowed to be photographed while wearing those shirts.
