Photodex doesn't just make great software for slideshows - they help make great artists. If you haven't checked out their blog lately, there's a lot of solid content, and often about topics you wouldn't expect to find. Looking through their recent archives, this post by "Kathy" hit me because of its strong diversity.
I know many of you don't think about macro or closeup photography, but even the most dedicated wedding photographer has to know how to get a good ring shot, flower images or other details that help tell the story of the wedding day. Understanding macro photography, at least a basic understanding, needs to be in your skill set.
Check out the post from Kathy below as she shares ten outstanding blogs to help you capture stunning macro and closeup images.
Notice her very last couple of sentences. Photodex would love to see your ProShow macro-themed slide shows and so would SCU.
