Stay the Course!

I am writing this post for a good friend.  Tomorrow he is halfway through his project of taking 50 straight days of macro photographs.  His rules are that he must take the photo and edit it that day.  I am very impressed with what he did…and wait in great anticipation to see where he will go from here.

So in tribute to his halfway point I am going to remind him to stay true to his journey’s goal my keeping his focus on true north, and then to tell himself that he is only half full of lessons he has yet to learn from the project.

Take a look at his work and even if he calls himself a newbie…don’t believe it.  This guy loves Kelby Training Videos.  He borrowed my Metz ringflash, and wore out a new set of batteries in one night…actually four hours between shifts!  He loves bugs and takes requests.  He is a macro lover and growing into quite the artist.

Rich I’m proud of you buddy!  Just remember your journey is only now starting to show its rewards.  The first bud is coming, and so many more are now ready to bloom. Just keep plowing on.

I have a project coming up after baseball season, inspired by you!  Just have to figure out what it will be though…

Here is his project Mendler’s Macros  let him know what you think!
