These are being posted too late, so starting from this week, I’m going to try and do it on Friday. I will have to make sure the podcast is done sooner. For photo challenge 8 we are doing flowers.
Earlier this week a parcel arrived and in it was a new lens that Lensbaby have loaned to me, the Velvet 85. It is part of the Velvet series. I’ve been using the Velvet 56 for over a year now, so when they asked me if I would like to try it and review it, I jumped at the chance. I love the Velvet 56 and have loved using it for macro photography, so I was curious to see what the 85 would be like.
Earlier in the week I received an email to tell me that my application for accreditation to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show was accepted. I’m looking forward to spending some time there, for photography, and also to get some ideas for my own garden. I thought today I might take a look at previous visits from the last couple of years. I’m going to repost a blog from 2015.
Not really, well maybe in some ways. I’ve decided to change my theme. I liked the other theme, but I had so many problems with it and basically you don’t get any support after a certain period, like 12 months and then you have to pay more for it. I decided that I may as well take the opportunity to try out a new one. Here it is.
A while back I was telling you how I discovered someone had started an Instagram account with my email address. I changed the password and didn’t know what to do with it.
First I put up some of my old artwork, and then it just sat. About a month ago I thought I could use it for all my macro work. I can put some macro images on my main Instagram account, but not too many, so I thought, I could use this other one for that.
I have been using it for over a month now and I am loving it, so I thought it was time I introduced it to you.
So, if you like my macro work, I’m sure you will love this Instagram page. Here are some photos that I have had up recently. Some of the photos were taken with my macro lens and others with the Lensbaby Velvet 56. I hope you like them.
