Wild Black Raspberries

These will be delicious in late July when they are ready to eat!

Photo of wild black raspberries taken by ChristineMM in my yard in Fairfield County, Connecticut on 6/12/09.

Nice shot! I'm always challenged to keep the camera still long enough to have what I want in focus when I'm working so closely.

I just started a new blog for my photography hobby. Here are some of my close-up photos: http://tinyurl.com/m4fdj5 Hope you'll stop by!

Macro photogoraphy was one of the 2 main reasons I wanted to get a DSLR. The other being faster shutter to catch kids in candid shots.

This lens was standard with my camera which is an 18-55 mm lens. My camera has a macro setting that I sometimes use. However my flash goes off too much (may be a camera problem I'm still unsure) so sometimes I have to use the 'no flash' mode which means I can't use the macro setting.

When plants sway in the breeze & I'm taking a macro shot of a blossom or leaf, I have started grasping the stem out of camera's range to steady it while I shoot it (when possible to keep my hand out of the shot). Very easy and I'm surprised it works but it does. LOL.

I have wild black raspberries growing lots of places but don't get raspberries on them. What am I doing wrong? Should they be getting cut back or fertilized or something? Will you email any ideas to me? I'm just new to this and have no idea how I got this pages or how to return to it carshep@gmail.com
