Here I was going for a minimalist, almost studio-like look. Similar set-up to shutterpresser.com/2014/07/19/day-4-thistle with a radial filter brightening the left side along with the moss, to form a gradient.
Again no idea what flowers they are but the tree, which was pretty much next to the plant from the previous post, was covered in this blossom so couldn’t not take a photo.
This one is actually turned upside down since the blossoms were hanging down, it makes it look more interesting without looking unnatural. It was pretty hard to get the shot in focus because the branch was quite long and thin so the slightest wind would make it flail all over (tongue twister right there) the place.
Macro photography isn’t something I thought I would do often when I had my first DSLR, but after buying the 100mm macro lens I literally cannot stop taking macro photos.
I have to say that my other, cheaper, 70-300 Tamron VC etc. is also good for macro. The most striking difference is that at a smaller aperture, the Tamron has greater depth of field, though the ability to drop to F2.8 is great on cloudy days.
This photo is from the 100mm F2.8 (Canon), when I post a macro photo from the Tamron, I’ll indicate it.
I’ve avoided botany like the plague throughout my degree but I think it has caught up with me. I’ve been taking photos of flowers a lot, and do not have the first clue of their classification. For all I know, this could be an apple blossom…
Help with identification would be actually really appreciated/credited!
