Macro Dante

I was so excited when my parents gave me the macro lens filters that I was admiring for my birthday, so of course I took them out for a spin as soon as I had a chance. Therefore, please excuse the super low light – I shot these earlier this week before bed, when Dante was all sleepy and trying to go burrow under the covers instead of pose.  :)

Full disclosure for my fellow photographers: these are two of about four that I liked out of the roughly 35 shots I took! It’s super difficult to manually focus when you’re shooting at f/1.4 and your eyes are terrible. But it definitely makes it a bigger victory when you get a shot you love! I processed these with one of my favorite B&W action sets, Matchstick by My Four Hens.

Also, the light in my bedroom in the late afternoon is perfect. My ever-ready model agrees.
