Holy hell

So, it’s been a pretty busy week at Macrotography Towers (I don’t really have a tower, I just think it sounds cool). I won’t bore you with details, but let’s just say I haven’t had a great deal of time to be spending at my laptop.


Soon, things will all go back to normal, and I’ll be able to update my WP a bit more regularly.




What I do in my spare time:

Well, I’m an avid Motorcycle fan. so I spend a lot of time with my bike. Currently though, she’s off the road, so I’ve been detailing her up ready for riding season!


Here are some pictures 🙂

Hey there, sorry for the lack of updates this past week, been a little busy.


I’ve kind of hit a wall with Macro photography just lately, it’s getting harder to find things to take pictures of when you can’t get out of the house due to poor weather.


I’m sure that once the weather picks up again, I’ll be back to normal! Until then, have fun and take it easy.


Well it just occurred to me that macro photography is hard as fuck.


Like, it’s not just about getting the right camera-subject distances and focal length to get the best picture, it’s also about finding things to actually take pictures of! I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately as to take pictures of, so like, any suggestions would be real good right now lol

Regarding Unemployment

Today marked the last day that I held employment at the company I worked for.


This, in my opinion at least, is a good thing. Sure, money will he tight, but then it always was anyway. It does mean that I’ll have more time for things that I want to do, more pictures, posts, and even the odd YouTube video thrown in for good measure. It’ll take a little time getting used to not having to wake up at 4am every day, but I’m sure that, with time, that’ll come easy.


Anyway, watch this space for more news and posts very soon.


So, while browsing the Internet for Photography-related articles, media and reviews, I was directed to a ‘well-known’ image board. Now, this wouldn’t really come as a surprise to most people, but this image board is notorious for hosting and sharing gore, pornography, vehicle accident videos and other such less than friendly material.

On this image board I happened upon a Photography board, and I must admit I was actually blown away by the quality of the images that were being shared on it. Perfectly-framed landscapes, gorgeous wildlife pictures and high-quality still-life compositions.

Now, considering the regular content posted on the board, I was surprised to find all this ‘normal’ stuff being shared, and I guess it opened my eyes a little to the fact that, even though there are certain niches and topics at the forefront on web-based media, hidden snugly in the billions of pornography images and cat videos; there are actually some things worth taking notice of.



Photography on a budget:

Don’t get me wrong, the camera capabilities of mobile phones nowadays are unbelievable, but there’s just something about the sound and feel of a DSLR.
Now, when I first started out on my Photography journey, I, like many others before me, couldn’t afford a top-of-the-line Macro lens, So I set about exploring other avenues and methods of getting the results I wanted.
