Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

Macro photography Assignment.

Mystery Photo Assignment. First of three photos I'll be submitting.


Working on paying attention to backgrounds in the current macro photography lesson.

My poor kitchen. Actually, poor Ray. He asked me yesterday “Was I finished working on my current macro background assignment?” It’s one day later and I’m still not finished. I have enough shots to upload for the 4 assignment but the more I shoot, the more I learn, and the more I can’t settle with the previous shots I thought I’d upload.

Not paying attention to background.

Paying attention to background.


Lighting macro class shot.

These are the only shots of hours of shooting that I’m somewhat happy with.


Macro photography class begins.

In case you are wondering, this is torn wax paper being lit by a flashlight.

I'm embarrassed to tell how long I worked on getting this shot.
