Kasia Sokulska, part of the husband and wife duo that comprises MIKSMedia Photography, presents inspired macro images on her Google + profile page, outstanding and beautiful work to view. Her work inspired me to take advantage of railroad ties, made impermeable to water yesterday in Sexsmith, Alberta. With my EOS 60D, a quarter of an inch from the railroad tie, hung upside down from my Manfrotto tripod (also a never-done) I explored water droplets.

On the weekend, Dave Brosha e-mailed to highlight upcoming workshops likely in Calgary and Grande Prairie, Alberta; these would be accessed through his facebook page.

  1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m very happy to inspire :D. Wonderful work! I particularly love the second image with its vivid colors. We need all that we can get with the spring being so delayed…

    1. Hey there, Kasia:

      We do need colour and we do need spring; I’m glad to see snow melting and that we’re getting toward spring colours and intensity of light.

      It was a real treat to see how you worked with water in many ways with your macro lens … the colour and shapes. Good schtuff! 🙂

    1. Hey there, LB …

      Last summer I bought a good Canon macro lens and used it a few times. On Sunday, Kasia Sokulska’s macro images were on my mind and I had had a good, good chat with Stephen, a Grande Prairie photographer who also works at London Drugs. The possibility for shaping things toward a macro image was building. In Sexsmith, Alberta, within snow flurries, I was presented with creosote covered railroad ties holding water droplets and put the ‘camera + lens + inverting tripod’ equation all to good use to capture water droplets. It was a never-done, attempted … with result, something you’ll try when you’re ready.

      All of us our novice photographers … we’re all vulnerable to the potential image and work to gather it (with good and less than good results). We learn, right? 😉

  2. Everytime, you catch things just right, for me the black and white bring out some details the colour others. To pick a preference is just not possible.
