I seriously feel so, so uninspired right now. And I hate that feeling. Anyone want to give me an assignment lol ;)
I feel like this:

And I just want to feel like this:

Winter needs to just go away...or my taxes need to get here so I can buy myself a small toy to inspire me ;)

Shout out to the awesome Heather who posted this cool tip for a makeshift macro.
I had fun playing with it though I don't have very steady hands so they aren't that sharp.
A shirt of mine, w/out the makeshift macro:

And in close detail with the makeshift macro:

And of course the obligatory droplets shot:

Totally making me want a real macro lens!

Bobbi, those macros are so cool. I may have to give it a try. Cute expression shots of your little guy. They are so crisp.

I love the last photo! Very cool! Your son is so cute!

pat said...

Nice work, Bobbi. Love the waterdrops (of course!!) And that first shot of Cool Mr. B made me laugh out loud.

pakosta said...

he is so darn CUTE>!
what about a photo of the boys painting?! i love artsy shots? or them sleeping? reading a book?! playing trucks?!

Mandy said...

I seriously think I am going to buy a macro lens! I just love them...and you can use them for more than just macro like things. The 100mm 2.8 isn't that expensive, right. :P

I really know what you mean about feeling uninspired. The cold is just ripping the creativity out of me.

I love that first shot...omg...its so...honest. There is a lot to be said for honest art, Bobbi.

Great shots. I have a macro but I am going to have to try that! How cool!

Mom2Drew said...

Oh man...looks good to me! that's some serious close up on that second shirt shot, wow.

Hmmm...for inspiration.

how about taking a pic of your dinner tomorrow? maybe even the process of making the dinner. from start to finish.

What a cutie you have on yours hands, love his pics. Your macro shots are great!

Margaret said...

For feeling uninspired, you have some absolutely fabulous shots! Those shots of your little guy are so fun, and I love your shots with the makeshift macro!

Sharon said...

Looking inspiring to me!

Reds said...

Too bad I don't have a 50mm or a macro yet... :( Great shots!

lcp said...

LOVE the bubbles! That lens trick works really well - what great examples!

Gypsy Girl(Brenda) said...

Such cute faces. Love the banner.

Linnao said...

The first pictures are so fun! Love them! I read about the macro lens tip on the board but haven't tried it... looks good though!

Susan Beth said...

Great way to make due with the make shift! Love your little guy and the way he just shines joy.

Lori said...

That first shot is tooooo funny! I feel like that some days too! I haven't had a chance to try out the macro tip, I'm gonna play around this weekend. Yours look great!!!

Michelle Duckworth said...

Aww the photos of how you feel and how you wish you felt made me laugh! What a cutie! I hate to feel uninspired. But the macros are cool!

Angela2932 said...

Well, I think you're doing "creative" just fine!

Amy said...

Very cool shot of the water drops! Your son is too cute! And I missed this macro trick, I'll have to check that out. :)

Lauren Hartman said...

Those first two pics are so cute! I totally "get" the uninspired" thing. I think it is pretty typical for this time of year.

I love that you shot some macros, but I didn't read whatever it was that got you there.

My idea for you for inspiration is the color YELLOW. That's it, just yellow. Just thinking about that color should perk you up a little bit, right?

Tori said...

I really love the water droplets! So cool! And B is SO cute! I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets those expressions. :)

Jess said...

Oh honey... I feel like that first shot too! I am so out of practice and it's only been a little over a week since I've been able to use my camera... hurry up, tax man, so Bobbi and I BOTH can get some new toys to play with! ;)

The super macro shots are amazing! That reminds me of what I get with the extension tubes if I put them ALL on. I am SO with you on wanting a REAL macro lens though- I think it would be so much easier to control the focus and DOF then! :)
