Three New Photo Albums For 2012
Wednesday 14 March 2012 — Category: Shooting
This week I created three new general photo albums for 2012: one for neighborhood photos, one for macro photos, and one for astrophotography.
Neighborhood 2009 and Neighborhood 2011 photo albums, the new Neighborhood 2012 album contains pictures I took in the area around my house, in southwest Albany, Oregon. The photos in this album demonstrate once again that you don’t have to travel far from home in order to find interesting shots. You can expect this album to grow over the year as I add more pictures.
Macro Magic 2011 photo album, the new Macro Magic 2012 album contains close-up pictures I took with a macro lens. There is so much to see and discover with a macro lens — like this photo of my very own eye! I’m making some changes in my macro lens kit this year, which I will share in a future blog entry. You can expect this album to grow over the year as I add more pictures.
Heavenly Bodies 2006-2011 photo album, the new Heavenly Bodies 2012 album contains pictures I have taken of heavenly bodies — no, not like my grandpa’s pin-up girls in the darkroom! — but like the sun and the moon. I hope to do more of this type of photography this year. Last year I bought some specialized equipment to facilitate astrophotography, but I have not had the opportunity to use it as of yet. Once I have tried it out, I will make a full report in a future blog entry.
Because I’m planning on making a few trips to Eastern Oregon this year, I am expecting that I will be able to take advantage of the clear skies, dry weather, and lack of light pollution, to expand this photo album with some great (hopefully!) shots of the stars and planets. Stay tuned!
