Up until recently I have captured the images for the #The100DayProject using my AF-S Nikkor 35 f/1.8 lens. I rented a macro lens hoping to capture some juvenile amphibians in the vernal pools during my hike in the Sourlands. I wanted to learn how to use the lens. This morning and this afternoon I bent over a patch of crocus growing in the yard and capture some images. I learned that I may have to show at small apertures and ISO 400 and maybe use a flash. The DOF of a macro lens is very narrow so a small aperture helps. However, smaller apertures means less light enter the sensor. Shooting at higher ISO and using a flash helps.

This was my one of my favorites from the set. You can find the rest on Flickr.
