Photography has always been my hobby. I love my camera and composing beautiful pictures. I think beekeeping will lend itself to an opportunity for great photographs. Up until now I have mostly done portrait photography and I’m excited to try my hand at macro photography. I currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon EF 50 mm f/1.4 (a nifty 50). I’ll be researching a new macro lens to purchase and learning all I can about this beautiful art form. It’s a huge bonus that we have a local photography store that rents a selection of lens’s that I can test out before buying. As soon as our weather gets better and the insects and bugs come out I’ll be going down there to rent a macro lens. I think I’ll start with the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro and see how that works. I’ll keep you up to date on the equipment I’m using for each shot as well as the camera settings and how I’ve done my post production.
