July 16 Sunday Sampler + “I’m Curious” column

Hi there! Sorry for the delay – this weekend was the 72nd annual New England Camera Club Council Conference! A wonderful weekend of learning, sharing and socializing as always! Brian Peterson was our keynote speaker this year – extremely entertaining and informative! Mark your calendars now for the 73rd annual Conference on July 13, 14, 15, 2018! And bookmark the website for more info at: http://www.neccc.org/ 

Come share the fun with nearly 1,000 other photography enthusiasts!



This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of a few more textures from the Baltimore portion of our May vacation – a section from an abstract painting in the condo we stayed at; diagonal worn wood boards and a tapestry. Enjoy! And don’t forget to show us your creations on Facebook in our group “Textures: Turn Ho-Hum into a Work of Art”!


Macro photography is a popular subject, and I found a few helpful articles on PictureCorrect.com that will help you in your macro pursuits.

“5 Tips to Improve Your Nature Macro Photography”, “10 Macro Photography Subject Ideas”, “Quick Macro Photography Tricks”, and “Do You Really Need a Macro Lens?” all have some great info.

I love shooting macro myself – I have a 90mm Tamron macro lens which I love, but should I not have that lens with me, I still can shoot close-up/macro with just about any lens in my bag. So give it a whirl if you haven’t yet!

Another wonderful resource for macro and creative photography is Charles Needle of Irvine, CA. He was one of the speakers at our NECCC Conference and is an excellent instructor/speaker/workshop leader. He will definitely inspire you and get the creative juices flowing – not only for macro but in many creative techniques.
