Natural Abstractions - Website Online

After many months of design, redesign, starting over, design, redesign, and so on, I finally launched my website!

Natural Abstractions - The Photography of Scott Carlin

Although I only have two of the galleries completed, and parts of the site are not yet functional, I feel a tremendous relief getting the bulk of the development behind me, for now.

I will be adding a Guestbook, Contact Form, and eventually may implement a Print Ordering System from the website. My main focus though, is to have the images available for viewing.

I welcome all constructive feedback and comments about the site and my photography. You can contact me from here, or from the Contact page on the website.

Macro Photos

Lately my macro lens has been on my camera a lot. It is the Canon EF 100mm Macro f2.8. An amazing lens that I have not given enough use...
"Three Can Share"
I guess since it is the end of summer, and good nectar is getting hard to find, these three different species seemed to have no problems sharing this single flower. I think there's a profound lesson to be learned in this image...

This wasp, along with about 20 others, were feeding off of a huge sunflower stalk. I set up my tripod and camera, with the macro lens just inches away from these guys. Although they did perform a thorough inspection of my camera, to my relief they showed very little interest in me.
