For the Floral Friday post today I thought it might be nice to show you some photos I took when visiting the Dunedin Botanical Gardens. I took a few, but have only prepared three.
Floral Friday – Dunedin Botanical Gardens
There is no doubt that I love macro photography. However, when I was in New Zealand the biggest problem I had was no macro lens. Because I only had the Fujifilm X-T3 on loan, I had to compromise. It seemed the best way to do any was to use the XF18-135mm lens and see what I could get with it.
It is never easy using a zoom lens when you are so used to being able to get really close. I’ve been using a macro lens for a quite a few years now and I love them. It was interesting going back to how I had to do them before I had it and all the other macro gear I have. It was easy in a way, just open up the aperture and click.
One of the biggest problems I have with the idea of converting to a mirrorless system is that I have a lot of stuff for macro photography. It would cost me quite a bit to replace it all and I’m not sure I want to do that. I was given a lot of stuff too when a company closed down. Macro is something that I love too much to give up.
Time is something I feel I need here. I’ve been preparing my own garden for it, so I need to think more.
There are three images for this post. It seemed like an idea to pick just white ones. No idea why really. Well, why not. I hope you like them as well.
Oh, I should mention that I don’t know what they are. One might be a rose or a camelia. One a daisy, but who knows. The last, no idea at all. Just enjoy.
