Try Something New Tuesdays--Macro Photography

Ok, so I'm a week and one day late on the Try Something New Tuesday post.  Blame my husband!  He had better things for me to do than blog yesterday and last Tuesday (like look for a new computer which we have not bought yet).

Try Something New Tuesdays

If you are new to Try Something New Tuesdays, it's super easy!  Simply grab your camera or photo editing software and try something new--anything!  Use a different mode on your camera, a photo editing technique you’ve always wanted to try, a new texture you found, or even something as simple as using a different angle while shooting. Anything goes, as long as it’s something new you’ve done this week. “Failures” are welcome! After all, we’re trying something new!

This post I did last Friday inspired me to get out of the normal modes on my camera and start to see my world in macro.  For an entire day, I went around and tried to shoot things in macro.  I stayed away from flowers and bugs and things like that because that's what everyone uses macro for.  I wanted to do something different.  Here's some of my favorite shots....
 Ok, I have no clue what happened with the editing on this photo! I edited it last night (in the middle of the night) when I got home from work and I must have been half asleep. Something's off...oh well, you get the point of the picture :)

Try Something New Tuesdays will run from the FIRST Tuesday of the month until the second Tuesday of the month (except this month because I'm a week late).  You can join in at any time during the week.  Grab the button up top to link back to my blog then link your blog up in the MckLinky below.

Cool shots! I like the comb. I still can't believe you take all of these with a point and shoot!

What a great idea! I love your shots - especially the keyboard. I couldn't figure out what it was at first - I thought it was a blister pack of Pepto-Bismal!

I give you a virtual hi-five for picking macro subjects outside of the flora/fauna category

I'm so glad I found you on Blog Frog. I love the title of this blog! I am a picture nut. But now all my friends have recently boughten DSLRs, many are now "photographers" (meaning they took 1 class and now charge $100 to do portraits and give people a CD.) I'm so jealous as I love photography, but I don't have the money or time to devote to an SLR. We have a Cannon that is the step under a DSLR. It's now been probably over a year and I don't feel like I've gotten any better. :-( Most of the time I'm not even taking pictures! The idea of your blog has kind of reenergized me to get my camera out again. Maybe I should even be brave enough to *gasp* post one of my pictures on my blog! Looking forward to reading more!
