We knew you could do it and you did NOT disappoint! SO many awesome macro images this week! I definitely don’t envy Sarah Bednar having to choose images for the next issue of the Magazine!
New this week
Did you see that Sarah Bednar posted a tutorial on using the reverse lens technique to achieve macro results without macro gear? If you ever lose the post, it’s been added to last week’s macro lesson found here.
You guys are on a roll with all things nature! This month’s facebook feed brings such peace and beauty! We cannot WAIT to see this week’s images! Head out and show us what landscape photography is around you! (There’s even some panoramic talk in the lesson too!!!)
Show us all the landscapes! You can put those beauties right here.
SPS Virtual meet up is around the corner! July 29th at 9pm EST/ 8 pm CST Here’s the link! If password is needed: SPSLive We will have breakouts again – this time with some gear talk! Go Pro and lenses and maybe even some camera talk!

- Alison Sutich paired the pattern in a pinecone with the pattern of her daughter’s dress to create a great image.
