I had the opportunity last night at our monthly Digital Photography Club meeting to talk about my interest in Macro Photography. When I was first asked, my initial reaction was to say NO, thinking “Why Me?”, I will just embarrass myself in front of all these wonderful photographers, plus I have a tremendous fear of getting up in front of a group of people to talk. After thinking about it for a little while I decided “what the heck” I’ll go for it. Half the battle then was deciding what pictures to show and how was I going to tell people what I knew about Macro Photography when I was still learning myself! Leading up to my “time” my heart was pumping overtime and my hands were sweating buckets. I had 5 minutes to make my presentation, it went quickly and I actually did pretty well, considering my sweating palms and occasional mind blanks! I know the photos for our blogs are to be our own and I broke the rules by having a friend take this shot, but I faced my biggest fear and I’m able to check off one of the weekly themes at the same time!
