Macro Photography: A bright new world

I've been doing photography steady on Dreamstime for about a year now

and it's been great, I haven't made a lot of money but luckily my day job pays the bills so I can really concentrate on just having fun and relieving a bit of stress by taking pictures for fun. Recently I picked up a macro lens in a really great package deal, I really didn't know what to expect and really planned on selling the lens.

Not knowing what to expect I snapped the lens on my camera and headed out into the woods seeking bugs, frogs, flowers and anything else that eluded my daily walk around a 28-105 lens. After an interesting outing I arrived back home and popped in the card in my laptop and waited on the result, wow!! is all I can say, the images just blew my mind, the detail the colors were just mind boggling, to put it plainly this 100mm macro just became my new favorite lens.

Under my new lens insects, flowers and leaves came to life in a whole new world, bursting with bright, vivid and energetic colors. Someone once said to understand the "whole picture", you need to look at the "big picture" well let me tell you if you love photography as I do it doesn't get any bigger than macro photography.
