Recently I visited a photography exhibition by the talented travel and wildlife Italian photographer Marco Urso. It was like his work flipped a switch and made me feel motivated to do photography again. Only yesterday, I post processed three photos that are now ready for publishing. Yay!
This shot captures a detail of the Greek fir in my garden and was obtained by adding a closeup filter to the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit lens of my 600D. This filter creates a superb, soft and round bokeh but you need a very steady hand to avoid blurring your subject out. Because of this, and because I've recently purchased a true, wide-aperture macro lens, I'm considering getting myself my first tripod.
I don't feel it to be that urgent though, as this also reminds me that I'll be unemployed again next month and that I'll be having a job interview some time in May for a job that I should start in July, so wish me luck!
On the other hand, June's going to be a sort of holiday month and I'll have plenty of time to work on photography.
