    Exposure: Nature up close

    Earlier this week, the photography department was asked to illustrate a story on bees. The request was for a close-up image of bees at work. Naturally, I was intrigued by this assignment as I don't often use the full potential of our 100mm macro lens in our day-to-day shooting. A macro lens is specially designed to allow for close-up focusing. Much closer than normal lens allow creating near to life-sized images of your subject, which means greater details of the miniature world around us. While out looking for bees at work, I started to feel somewhat like Sir David Attenborough (not really). I found myself looking at the natural world close-up within a small section of land in the Brandon Hills.
