Turning Point

Getting personal in blogs is controversial topic to many bloggers. A lot of people out there are very private on their blogs and only talk about whatever their business/industry is. I think getting personal in "business blogs" can be a good thing. That way your clients and readers can not only see the business side of you but also the personal side. I find this to be especially helpful in photography as people tend to hire someone that they can consider a friend, not a stranger.

That being said I think there are some things that should definitely be kept private. I will not go into details but in the past month (ish) a lot has changed in my life. I am heading in a completely new direction now than I was 2 or 3 months ago. This is why I haven't blogged in such a long time. When life gets hectic you have to get your priorities straight, and even though I love to blog and I love my readers, my blog wasn't one of my main priorities during these changes in my life.

that has changed :) I have a bunch of photos to post up from the past 2 months. This week I purchased my first macro lens (Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM for anyone that was wondering) and did some quick test shots of my mom's sunflowers last night. I absolutely adore the results and can't wait to use these beautiful lens more.

Please leave some critique on these photos in the comments section :) I haven't done much macro photography before so I'm very new to it and want to learn/grow as much as I can in this field.

Happy Friday :)
