BPC Macro Outing: Camp Hunt Photos
Click on this flower-among-the-flowers to see more photos.
Saturday we headed off to a beautiful church-run camp here in the Bloomington area, Camp Hunt. The property features creeks and woods and meadows and a lake … a beautiful setting in the rolling hills of Monroe County. One of our Bloomington Photography Club members was kind enough to invite the macro/closeup focus group out for a shoot, including a lakeside lunch. The morning was filled with friendship, beautiful weather and some early spring flowers. Sue and I shot with the Fuji X-T1, and it held its own with any of the larger DLSRs. We are learning more and more about this camera, its strengths and its few weaknesses. It was a fun day, one most appreciated after the winter we endured.
I have a few photos today that we took at Camp Hunt (plus just a couple from a later afternoon side trip to nearby McCormick’s Creek State Park). I am not an accomplished macro shooter (in fact I have registered for a Mike Moats workshop to get better at this particular genre of photography). But it was a most fun day, a most enjoyable day, and these images will give you a feel of the changes that are beginning to take place around us. And it was far too nice a day to spend inside, especially with our camera gear calling.
