I got a macro lens this year, and have been having a ton of fun playing with it. I started with a class at the US Botanical Gardens through capital photography center, and then my mentor Kristi Odom assigned me a field trip to Brookside Gardens. I jokingly love to hate on Maryland, but it was BEAUTIFUL. Quite the hidden gem. I just loved the new way I was able to capture Spring this year, and it really has made me start making sure to notice all the flowers and leaves out in nature.
