You must be thinking since there are 3 posts this week that I’m back to my normal schedule. I wish! Actually, I was able to schedule the 3 posts with photos I have taken a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately I still don’t have time to keep up with my blog yet, but I’m hoping in a month or two that I will.
For this post I’ll keep with the theme I have going for the week. Sunflowers!
This one was taken with my macro lens. I wasn’t really quite sure what I was going for but I knew I wanted something that would show quite a bit of detail for parts of the flower but have a shallower depth of field. After taking a few different angles this one stood out the most to me. It’s almost like the sunflower has an eye and it’s looking out.
I’m happy that my wife and kids decided to plant some sunflowers this summer as it gave me new subjects to shoot. I’m hoping at our new house that we’ll be planting some next year to do more experimenting. We’ll also be planting a garden and hopefully my wife will plan more flowers. I’ve found that I enjoy photographing these things and experimenting with my flash when possible. I’m looking forward to shooting more sunflower plants while experimenting with water and light.
