Don't Forget To Breathe
The lens is amazing and after a full day of taking photos, I have realized there are a few things I need to learn. 1. Need to breathe in sync to pressing the shutter. If I take a breath, the camera and I move just slightly and I can't even see what I was trying to shoot. 2. This Macro world is so seductive; it's a slightly altered universe, a bit what I imagine deep sea diving is like, and all of yesterday I wasn't quite sure where I was in the universe. 3. Need to relearn F stops and depth of field, [ can you hear my teeth grind?]. Every time someone mentions F stops I feel a door in my brain clang shut, but I need to have more of the frame in focus, so please brain give me a break!
