PLEASE TELL MR DEMILLE I’M READY FOR MY CLOSE-UP, IN BLACK & WHITE!

CBWC: Close Ups

Close-ups are sometimes macros and other time, head shots or portraits. Macros are for flowers. Humans are portraits, or as we used to call them, “head shots.” Portraits. I used to do a lot of portraits, but in recent years, not so many. As we get older, many of us avoid close-ups. I look at me and I think “YE GODS, NO CLOSE-UPS!” Time does things to us. But I take a lot of flower and bird and dog close-ups. That’s got to count for something!

    • I didn’t think that shot would come out, but I had my macro lens on the camera and he got close enough so El Duque is a macro 😀 Usually he just like sticking his nose into the lens. It is VERY hard to get dog nose imprints off the lenses.

      Kaitlin in a beauty. She’s almost 10 years older now than she was in that picture, but she’s still gorgeous.
