Raynox dcr250 Macro Conversion Lens - Cactus Taken Without Tripod

I am making progression with the marco lens  .....I promised myself that I will master it in a year's time.  I am in love with my camera and the macro lens . A good start for my macro photography journey.  It is hard to take macro shots without a tripod....I find it inconvenient to be carrying the tripod everywhere I go..hehehe so now I am strengthening my arm muscles to be strong to be able to hold the camera steadily.  So much to learn about manual setting and I find it interesting...though I am at the age where absorption is slower LOL! but I will get there eventually.  

At just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't GIVE UP - Galatians 6:9

To the pro these photos may not be of standard but to me , it is not bad for a beginner like me...take my age in consideration :)

I like this shot....sharp at a spot and yet the depth of field is prominent

still room for improvement
the lighting is right but spot of focus
is still blur

this is a better focus 
and depth of field is prominent 
there is improvement in this shot and
I am happy with this shot

 more flowers in my next post...stay tuned :)
thank you for coming
it inspires me to see readers coming 
to read and see my work :)

Raynox dcr250 Macro Conversion Lens On My NikonD3200 - Water Droplets

Trying very hard to master my photography skill on my NikonD3200 with the Raynox dcr 250 macro conversion lens which I paid RM320 for.  So much to learn from the hubby and I think my Nikon D3200 will never be a white elephant after all.  I am so thankful that my hubby is willing to take me to places where the subjects are of interest to me. Flowers, insects and food are the subject of interest for me :)  For today, I would like to share with you some of the photos I took on water droplets still hanging on the leaves.  I would not say that they are the best shots yet but I promised I will be good ...give me a year to master the art and one year from now...my photos will be better than these :) My skin is getting darker by the days, sun tanned skin doesn't really suits me but God knows how much I love shooting with my Nikon D3200 and now I understand why my friends who takes to photography are so sun tanned and brown :)  I am turning into one too  !

all photos are taken without a tripod ...with a tripod
the pictures will be more sharp

there is still room for improvement :p

if only this is more sharper...have to get the right setting
but I love the many water droplets hanging on the leaves
before dropping off to the ground

Stay tuned...more on my takes of flowers in the coming posts

thank you for dropping by...your dropping by 
gives me inspiration to master the art 
of photography :)

Raynox dcr-250 On Nikon D3200 - Basil Blooms

my first take of garden Basils blooms
with Raynox dcr-250 on my Nikon D3200

Enjoy !  

Selmer Flute

The flute  is commonly used in orchestras, chamber music, wind ensembles/concert bands, military bands, and marching bands. The flute belongs to the woodwind family. My kids love orchestra performances especially performed by the  Malaysia Philharmonic Orchestra  in KLCC.

The above photo shows The Prelude PC711 piccolo  which features a silver- plated head, composition body, silver-plated keys, conical bore body, and a split E mechanism. This value-priced selmer flute  is an excellent beginner instrument. The composition body is impervious to temperature and moisture changes and makes this instrument great for both indoor and outdoor performance. An entry-level instrument that combines value and performance.  If you are looking for a entry-level..this is a good one and you can check the website for more details.
