Project 52: Get Close

Folks, I’m going to be honest. I’ve been battling a stomach bug, and I don’t feel like writing a blog post. But I made a commitment, and I’ll honor it, even if what I write is so short it shouldn’t really be called a blog post.

This week, the photographers participating in this project were tasked with “getting close.” To take close up or macro photos. I’m at somewhat of a disadvantage. I don’t have a macro lens, and the lenses I have don’t focus at ranges closer than about 18 inches. So, the photos weren’t really that close. They were more zoomed than anything else.

I’ve always loved detail shots of dogs’ noses, though, so you’ll notice noses play a predominant theme in these photos.

Sorry I don’t feel like doing more, but this bug has gotten the better of me.

Hopefully, Susanah, who’s up next, felt better than I did this week. So head on over to Susanah Maynard of Pet Love Photography, serving Greater Cincinnati, San Francisco, and Beyond.



Oh the noses! Love it! Sorry you’re not feeling great. Hopefully some snuggles with your pups will help improve that! 🙂

Glad you’re feeling better. Noses are fun closeups and I love the one of the tags. 🙂

I used zoomed in shots this week too! Sometimes you gotta do what cha gotta do. 🙂 Glad you’re feeling better!

Hope you are feeling better soon! I think I am starting to like noses!

That cute little nose (and face) in the first pic has me mesmerized. I hope you feel better soon, Tim. Nothing worse than a stomach bug in my opinion.

Thank you. I’m already over the bug. That’s what I get for waiting until the last minute to write a blog post.

Hope you feel better Tim! Great idea to shoot the dog tag! Also wanted to tell you that I tried your silhouette idea with my dog….the one where you inverted to get a black/white/black image. Thanks for that! I love the outcome!
