I taught some classes at Gerrards Cross Summer school and also was a participant in a couple. One of the ones I took was garden and bug photography with Gill Ferguson. A very good day which confirmed my aim of a couple of years to buy a DSLR. I have now been lent a camera to try by someone who had taken some photos for the National trust and included our bee project so this will be mainly a gallery of some of preliminary efforts.
The borrowed camera is a Canon 20D with a good sigma macro lens. These first photos are more to get to grips with the camera – no real attempt to compose shots well or do fancy control of shutter speed etc.
