Trip to the Daegu Arboretum

During our last photography lesson, we headed over to the Daegu Arboretum to try and take some photos of flowers. It was hot out with the sun beating down and there wasn’t a lot of shade where we were. However that wasn’t the worst part of it all. That would be that there just weren’t that many flowers out yet. All in all, it was a good day as I learned a lot and got a couple good shots.

I quickly realized that patience might be the most important factor in doing macro photography. A slight breeze seemed to throw everything off, but it was a lot of fun. We were messing around with lighting as well using different flashes which taught me quite a bit.

As fun as it was, I am not sure macro photography is for me. It’s an interesting form of photography, but I simply prefer other types and I don’t think there will be room in my camera bag for a macro lens. Having said that, I was glad I learned about it.

Here are a few of the shots I took. Most didn’t turn out as I had hoped due to the focus being slightly off due to many factors.
