We had the opportunity today to attend a class held by a local camera shop on macro photography. The setting for the class was the annual Dahlia Festival out in Canby, OR (http://www.dahlias.com/).
Weather was beautiful, instruction was fantastic, and plus they let us play with all the expensive toys. All the photos in the gallery were taken with a dedicated 105mm Nikon Macro lens. I want, so terribly much.
The full gallery is available here.
