You Capture – Up Close and Personal

17 Sep


I was very excited when I saw this challenge. I love macro. I keep trying to convince my dad he needs to get a macro lens for his camera, but he just does not understand the love of macro.

I only got one new photo this week though…darn baby teething makes it so difficult to get anything done.

And then here are some from the Labor Day shoot that I love and want to share!

Spiky Fruit 02
Dandelion 01
Portland Nature 26
Portland Nature 15

    I really like the first shot. It tells a story. Very cool.
    (you should have a story telling contest – or you should write a story with some of your photos.)

      Oh a contest is a good idea!

      And I try to tell stories whenever I can…it’s always so much more interesting!

    Why is it dandelion “leftovers” look amazing in photographs (especially yours!) but so ugly on my lawn? 🙂 Truly beautiful pictures!

    • mrssoup September 17, 2009 at 11:14 am #

      Haha, I think its because one never wants them in a lawn! Thank you so much for visiting!

    Awesome shots! I love the last one 🙂

    • mrssoup September 17, 2009 at 11:11 am #

      Thank you!

      That’s probably my favorite as well…

    Wow. Did you really manage to pluck your eyebrow AND photograph it at the same time? Mad props to you! Plus it’s a gorgeous photo. Awesome. I like the last one too!

      You wouldn’t believe how many outtakes I had to do….but thank you! Used the macro side of my little mirror at my desk and my iPhone camera. Booya!

    I love #2 & 3!! My kids love to find those spikey ball things, whatever they are called!

    • mrssoup September 17, 2009 at 12:27 pm #

      I wish I knew what they were called…but I love them! They are SO cool looking!

    Great first shot, though I hate that dreaded task!! 🙂 And the dandelions…love them!!

    • mrssoup September 17, 2009 at 12:28 pm #

      See, plucking actually is relaxing to me. It’s concentrating on one thing, the pain is minimal and it’s fun to fix something instantly.

    Oh, I love the first dandelion shot!

    • mrssoup September 17, 2009 at 2:18 pm #

      Thank you! The background was actually a car parked by the road. Loved it!

  9. Heather~Domestic Extraordinaire September 17, 2009 at 4:13 pm #

    great shots! I love the third one especially!

    • mrssoup September 17, 2009 at 4:17 pm #

      Thank you so much! I’m glad you like them!

  10. Lorena September 17, 2009 at 5:30 pm #

    The third photo is beautiful! =)

    • mrssoup September 18, 2009 at 8:17 am #

      Oh thank you so much!

  11. Christy M. September 17, 2009 at 6:01 pm #

    The dandelions are so beautiful! And you are a talented girl getting a shot of yourself plucking your eyebrows! I’m impressed!!

    • mrssoup September 18, 2009 at 7:58 am #

      Awww, thanks! It took some time but I got it eventually!

  12. keli September 17, 2009 at 7:00 pm #

    Oh yeah … you and macro are getting along just fine. These are great! That 1st daffodil shot made me catch my breath.


    • mrssoup September 18, 2009 at 8:07 am #

      Awww, thank you sweetie!

  13. alice September 17, 2009 at 8:28 pm #

    great shots! i need to get outside with my macro and see what i can do :). you are definitely an encouragement :O)

    • mrssoup September 18, 2009 at 8:08 am #

      Yes! You do! Macro is amazing because it seriously lets you look deeper into an object. Something boring because amazingly beautiful.

  14. Alison Rowe September 18, 2009 at 8:51 am #

    I love playing around with the Macro lens. I love the third picture! Great job.

    • mrssoup September 18, 2009 at 9:02 am #

      I so wish I had a macro lens….someday. Someday.

      Thank you!

  15. Aunt Becky September 18, 2009 at 9:33 am #

    Will you pluck my eyebrows? That’s all I care about.

    • mrssoup September 18, 2009 at 9:41 am #

      Hey, I do my mom’s, I don’t see why I couldn’t do yours either!

  16. Erin September 18, 2009 at 10:05 am #

    Love the dandelions!

    • mrssoup September 18, 2009 at 10:18 am #

      I am so glad! Thank you for visiting!

  17. Caroline September 19, 2009 at 1:35 pm #

    The first shot is very clever. The colours in the first dandelion shot and beautiful and I love the contrasts in the B&W berries – great variety – and talent 😀

    • mrssoup September 19, 2009 at 3:49 pm #

      Thank you so much! I am so glad you liked it…and I am now blushing.

  18. Vera September 19, 2009 at 10:48 pm #

    These are awesome photos, thanks for sharing. Reminds me it’s been ages since i paid attention to my eyebrows! haha 🙂

    • mrssoup September 21, 2009 at 1:51 pm #

      ha! See? Everything can be a little reminder…course I hadn’t paid attention to my eyebrows in about…..7 months until that day, so figured why not take a picture of it!
