Macro-Photography is a lot of fun once you get things setup and start taking shots around the house. I'm tempted to start a few petri dishes of mold or maybe grow some sea monkeys. ":^)
To take pictures of snowflakes I set up the tripod and camera on the driveway (cold winter morning) and brushed snow onto a dark glove. Cloth isn't an ideal backdrop since it has lots of threads that will show up in the photo. A dark, black piece of construction paper would probably work better.
If you have any suggestions, ideas, or photos from your own macro-work please drop me an email.
The final two shots are of a lady bug I found sleeping on our window sill. The first lady bug woke up before I got it in focus and wouldn't sit still after that. Lucky for me this one kept napping for the five minutes it took to get these shots.
