Several times this past year I have rented a macro lens from my favorite lens rental company Lens Pro to Go (www.lensprotogo.com) and every time I have it I feel like I need to shoot everything close up. Today was no exception. I had to return the lenses today and an hour before UPS was scheduled to pick up the box I was running around trying to find something “inspiring” to shoot macro. A co-worker teased me about our resident moth that hitchhiked a ride on my leg up 16 floors to our offices only to disappear in the blinds somewhere. No doubt laying millions of mothman eggs to hatch and come swarm me at some point. Phew, got way off track there.Sorry. Insects creep me out.

So after all the joking around he finally provided a worthy suggestion of shooting the seashells that decorate a potted plant on the front desk.

  1. Good choice for a macro subject. Your moth story is funny. When we were recently out on the west coast, the house we were staying at would regularly be swarmed by moths at night. They’d find a window where some light was shining and they’d hammer their little bodies in the hundreds against the glass trying to get in. I’ve never seen so many insects in my life! It was like living in a Hitchcock movie but with moths instead of birds. I thought it was kind of cool and creepy at the same time, but judging by this post, I’m thinking you might not have thought it so interesting…
