We had a lot of fun at the macro roundtable tonight at the Mercer Island Library. Lots of toys abound. Chris Evans had his macro flashes and focus stacking gizmo. Craig Young was the big hit with his water droplet station. Karen Ussery brought some very pretty shells and Jann Ledbetter had a beautiful plate of flower pedals and chocolates (which we got to eat later). The point of all this was to get creative, bring a setup and rotate around to take macro shots. We also got to learn from each other. It’s a bit unnerving when you’re trying to time your shot with a drop of water hitting a pan from 3 feet above when 5 or 6 people are watching and cheering you on with “too early” or “too late”. But we all had fun.
