Many of you wrapped up 2021 last week. I, however, took the week off and…
Welcome to Macro Monday, a weekly post where I will share a photo I took with a macro lens.
Today’s post was not without it’s challenges. First, I tried to attach my macro lens to the big camera. And then realized that my macro lens doesn’t fit the Canon EOS 6D but rather fits my older camera, the Canon EOS 7D. Despite the higher number, the 6D is actually the better camera (it’s a full frame) but the 7D is just fine. Of course the battery was completely drained so I had to charge it, not a big deal, and then yesterday I took some photos. The next challenge came when I tried to upload the photos to my computer to process. The 7D uses a different memory card than the 6D and I don’t have a card reader for that type anymore, having recently replaced the previous one I had that fit multiple sized cards. I had to think way way back to remember how I used to do this and ended up directly connecting the camera to my laptop to transfer the photos.
This will get easier, right?
In the end, I wound up with 8 photos of the center of this gazania. Most weren’t as sharp as I’d like and this one only barely passes muster for me but it’s what I have and it gives me a good place to start from, knowing that practice will improve my rusty macro skills.
Happy Monday, go have a great day!
