Macro photography - Atlanta, Ga. Photography

A while back, I got the opportunity to play around with a variety of lenses that I've never used before. In that collection of lenses was a Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro. I love texture and tiny things, so I thought I would give Macro shooting a try. I chose items that were special to me, found object that tell a story. After playing around for several hours, I realize it will take many many...many more hours to master the art of Macro Photography. 

It took me quite a while to get some decent shots and figure out how to focus the lens on what I was trying to focus on. What I found out was that you have to be very patient, use a small aperture, and make sure you have lots of light!

Here are a few of the shots I'd like to share with you and stories behind the found objects I selected to photograph!

Macro photography of pin cushion. Four Corners Photography. Atlanta, Ga. Photography.
This is my grandmother's pincushion. When I was little, I used to play with this as if it were a toy. I loved the happy people surrounding the big pink circle. Now, it holds my sewing needles and pins, just like it used to hold my grandmother's.

Macro photography of miniature box. Four Corners Photography. Atlanta, Ga. Photography.
I got this box as a gift on my first mother's day. I love little trinket boxes, and this one is particularly special because it commemorates my first year as a mom!

Macro photography of bridal prayer book. Four Corners Photography. Atlanta, Ga Photography.
This was my grandmother's bridal book. This special prayer book was given to her to remember her wedding day by. My mother recently gave us the book for safekeeping. I feel honored to have such an heirloom in my possession. The pages are so beautiful, it was hard to pick just one to share with you.

Worry doll macro photography. Four corners photography. Atlanta, Ga Photography.
I got this worry doll in Portland, Maine several years ago. It was summer and I was away from home teaching art at a camp. Those endless days of summer in your youth? That's what this doll reminds me of. It reminds me of the time when I was first away from home, finding myself, getting spur of the moment tattoos, and eating too much ice cream. No worries.
