Holy Macro pt II

I am taking a course with Ed Heaton, Chester County Camera Club member, professional photographer, teacher, friend. The course is Macro/Close-up photography. It is one part critique, one part lecture, and one part hand-on.

This photograph was one that I submitted for the first class. For me, orchids are really tough to photograph, but since I purchased a Nikon 60mm f 2.8 Macro lens, I am having a blast...What happened to the Tamron? Well, I didn't realize that with a macro lens, the aperture is going to fluctuate depending on the distance the lens is to the object you are photographing...I thought there was something wrong, so I returned it. I went to another camera shop and looked at the Nikon, but the fluctuation happened again...This time, the associate was able to find out why the fluctuation was happening. Once this was explained to me, I felt better about it and bought the Nikon lens...
