Macro Monday:: Week 13

These macro shots are starting to really grow on me. I’m 13 weeks in or a quarter of the way through this adventure and I’m having such a blast searching around for material. The next couple months I’m sure will be filled with flowers. I’m loving the spring weather! We got up to 88 in Northern Virginia today. Anyways, I’ll stop rambling and bring you this weeks image:

I wasn’t sure I had this shot nailed, with the wind and people, and honestly wish it was a bit more sharp. Overall though, I love the pinks and soft feel of the whole image. This was taken yesterday while in DC visiting the Cherry Blossoms. I had so much fun and will be sharing some of my shots with you later in the week.

*Admin Note: Yesterday I posted on Facebook and wanted to mention this change here for everyone who follows this blog and has an interest in my photo walks. Please like my nicoleinbold facebook page for further updates and events. I am going through a reorganization, which means I will not be posting these things on my personal Facebook page starting this week. Oh and don’t be alarmed that my web page isn’t working, I’m in the process of switching hosting companies, things will be back up shortly! Thank you for you patience and support!

Macro Monday::Week 10

Some whimsy and fun for a less than peaceful Monday worldwide. I’m drawn to the asymmetry and sense of chaos that mother nature throws us. Out of every tragedy we learn how strong we really are, as a people, nation and world.

Macro Monday::Week 9

I hope everyone’s weekend was fun and your Monday was pain free!

This past Saturday I had the wonderful opportunity to teach the photography station at a local Cub Scouts Belt-loop Bonanza. The day was filled with boys learning everything from good manners and chess to basketball and soccer. I educated two groups on the parts of the camera and the benefits of photography in modern culture. Afterwards, we went outside to practice. The teaching part was fun, the kids learned so fast and were awesome with the technology, as everyone had a digital camera of some sort. I was excited and nervous to teach this station, one, given the age group and two, the relative expense of the common digital camera. It was hard to corral and structure picture taking with 10 or so boys, outside and wanting to go in their own direction. I couldn’t blame them though I tend to wander, not wear my neck strap and climp obstacles with my expensive camera. It is an exciting thing, to capture stills of everyday life. I made it out alive though and no one dropped their camera, plus there was plenty of sharing pictures with eachother. Overall, I enjoyed watching the boys learn and then practice and help eachother out. It was neat to see what they wanted to take pictures of as well. Mostly eachother, but I had a few willing to lay on the ground trying to get a leaf at a new angle, to be different and unique. A great experience!

In honor of the Scouts and to poke a little fun at us professional and hobbyist I have come up with this satirical image. I hope you enjoy!

Macro Monday:: Week 1

Happy Monday! (I promise not to start every post this way)

Today is day one of my 52 week project, Macro Monday. Which was inspired by Day 14 in Noah Scalin’s book as mentioned in my previous post.

” Make something microscopic. How small can you work? Can you make something that requires a magnifying glass or microscope to see?”

Here are two images that I took today. I think it may be a bit obvious what this is, but I’ve decided to post reference pictures for each Macro Monday on the following Macro Monday. Feel free to share your thoughts and feelings about these week after week, or even critique them. The goal is to take more pictures and learn as I go. I hope you enjoy! (original work by @k8meier)

Here are the reference images. Thank you @k8meier for sharing your art work and letting my capture your brush strokes.
