Another of my DIY super macro shots this time processed in Lightroom using the Direct Positive preset. I had to get so close to the bumble bee that I couldn’t use the view finder. I just stuck the camera down in the flowers and started shooting. This was one of the two or three shots out of 20 or so that sort of turned out.


I'm an industrial designer and an avid hobbyist photographer. People are always asking me "how'd you do that?" So, I decided to create this site as a place to share my experiences and insights about photography, the gear and what it all means to me. I'm not sure if this site will make anyone besides myself a better photographer but I figure it's worth a try. Take a look around and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by!
