My new website where I now post all my new blog posts, now has a subscriber sign up, where you add in your email address and when a new blog post is posted, you will get an email letting you know of a new posting.
Finally after 13 years in business I have created a website that will have my images, blog, and storefront in one place.  I will no longer be posting my blog here at this site, so all you subscribers that were receiving my blog posts through your email will no longer get them. There is a small square symbol next to the search box on the upper right side of the blog that you can subscribe to the new blog.  Thanks to all who have followed me here and I hope you continue following on the new website. Just go to to check out the new site.

In love with the intimate perspective afforded by macro photography? Looking to take your own macro work to the next level? While anyone can pick up a how-to book on macro photography or pick up tips from video tutorials, that newfound knowledge won’t take you far unless you know how to apply it to your own photos—and receive guidance on how well you’re applying it.
That’s where Mike Moats’ Macro Mentoring Course comes in. With scores of macro workshops under his belt, this Tamron Image Master and winner of multiple photo awards and contests has the technical know-how to walk you through the basics: everything from working with depth-of-field and selecting a complementary background to mastering the design elements behind creative compositions (trickier than you might think with macro).
But just as important as crafting the image is learning how to improve upon your results. Mike has the experience to guide you through macro-specific challenges, as well as insight gleaned from years in the field to offer a critique of your work that will help you maximize your macro skills and produce beautiful close-up images of the world in front of your camera. In Mike’s Macro Mentoring Course, you’ll be put through the photographic paces with fun shooting assignments, followed by a professional review of your photos to inspire you, challenge you, and help you further develop your skills.
Why register now? Because it’s summer, when there’s no shortage of tiny critters, plants, and an endless variety of other subjects ready to spark your imaging imagination. Mike is even offering a $50 seasonal discount to sweeten the pot: Simply type the word “macro” into the coupon/discount code box when you register.

Summer Plants

Posted: July 7, 2017 in Uncategorized
More plants from my summer vacation images.
When I’m out looking for subjects to shoot, I’m not just limiting myself to finding flowers and bugs to shoot.  I’m also studying all the interesting plant life for anything I find artistic in the form of a plant.  I’m looking for some lines that create a nice design.  Over the next few days I will post some of the plants that I found interesting. This is a Milkweed Plant, and I gave this one a abstract feel as I was tired of seeing the natural green plants.  Nikon D7000, Tamron 90mm Macro Lens, f5.6.
