You know you’re a gardener when you get gardening stuff as gifts.
Back in 2004, I was awarded MVP (something like an employee of the quarter award) at work and got gardening stuff as a prize.
You know you’re a gardener when you are the person that your coworkers go to when they need gardening advice.
I’ve been researching some photography techniques online and learned two techniques that I want to try.
One is called focus stack. For this, you take a series of macro shots of the same subject, each at a different focus depth. You then use a program like Photoshop to combine the various focused element into a single photo. This results in a photo with an exaggerated DOF (depth of field).
Here are some focus stack examples on Flickr.

The second is reverse lens. For this, you take a lens and attach it to your camera backwards. This essentially act sort of like a super magnifying glass.

I purchased a Conversion Lens Adapter for my Canon PowerShot A610. This way I can attach lenses and filters to my camera. I also purchased two lenses; a wide angle lens and a telephoto lens so I can experiment more with my camera and expand my photography skills.
