I thought this shot would take many many takes and many many pills, but I only had the one pill… Instead of trying to make the pill explode, I just split it and sprinkled the powder, then rotated the photo.
This one caught my eye because the sun picked it out of the rest of the bush. I like having a camera directly behind some leaves or branches when looking at the subject. They bend the light and give some fun abstractions of the bokeh. They make macro photos more interesting meaning I don’t have to use photoshop to spruce them up.
Just FYI, these are all from the same walk around Leicester campus in May (backlogs…), while waiting for a friend to finish his exam.
