A Quick Trip To Ness

Last weekend we decided to take a quick trip to Ness Gardens to enjoy some long overdue summer sunshine.

I didn’t grab many shots, because we were only there for about an hour, but here are a few of the ones I did capture.

I’m quite chuffed with these 4 shots, because they were all taken hand-held with my 100mm macro lens. Close-up work isn’t easy at the best of times, but when you’re taking moving subjects, outside and hand-held, virtually everything is working against you. Pin sharp macro is only really possible when you have the camera locked-off on a tripod and you take your subject indoors where you can control the environment.
