Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Floral Macros

Macro Flower 3 (640x531) (2)

Good morning from a cold Hastings.

I enjoyed Cee’s tips last week on taking floral macros.  I have always struggled with this.  My camera is mega slow after I dropped it so need to have perfect conditions to take really good shots. I have a lot of problems getting the right depth of field.  So I took her advice and zoomed in as much as I can and then cropped back to get my final images.

These were taken in our garden.  For the first image I wasn’t happy with the colour tone so used a filter to make it more interesting.

I still tend to use filters to get a more interesting final image.  I suppose though, it is all about developing my own style too.  I really miss my Mac apps though.

These were all edited with Photoscape.
