Over the past years I have fallen in love with and focused some of my efforts on Macro Photography. Close up photography comes with many advantages like keeping traveling expenses low while shooting in your own backyard, local rose garden or arboretum. Lighting is not as critical as it is for your scenic landscape and seascape photography. Overcast is often the best choice for success. In particular I enjoy the intriguing world of flower photography. Discovering the colors, forms and texture within the flowers has become one of my prime photographic targets. Getting in real close and Exploring the Unknown is a great joy. Creating floral abstracts using the elements of design is truly inspiring and a great creative outlet for me.
Usually, we as photographers strive for sharpness from foreground to horizon within our compositions. I challenged my own quest by moving in closer and using my photographic tools to the fullest. Now-a-days it excites me to work with only millimeters of Depth of Field. Challenging and stimulating the viewers brain and curiosity is priceless.
"Cascade" and "Red Surge" are my latest abstract photography gallery addition and I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking the photos!
I am curious: What inspires you?
I love the macro too! These are really beautiful, I especially like that last one. Patterns in nature inspires me, there's always something new to see :)ReplyDelete
