First Set

I started my project by simply going out into my garden with a macro lens and taking photos of plants. I think the use of macro gives another dimension and a different way of viewing objects and I figured that these natural objects were the best place to start considering the natural structures and textures that are formed with the plants and their surroundings. Although reasonable succesful at capturing this I found quite quickly that macro work is very reliant on good lighting and this was a problem concidering the dull lighting that day, also trying to match the focus and zoom to get the macro effect, so holding the camera still whilst zoomed in to 300x in dim lighting proved to be a problem.
