Happy Monday! I'm here with my second Macro Monday post, and today I have a little story. I usually purchase my own flowers when I plan to shoot macro indoors. I want to see the flowers in person, pick colors and shapes and see what I'm in the mood to photograph. Recently, however, my family and I were away, and my husband was out running errands. I was in the mood to shoot macro, so I asked him to bring home a bouquet of mixed flowers. I gave specific instructions to get a variety of different flowers. It didn't matter what they were; the only requirement was that they be different. Two hours later, he walked inside and exclaimed "I have a surprise! I brought you flowers!" Surprise? Not really, until I looked. He brought me two big bouquets of spider mums. No variety other than in color (white and purple). It was a big surprise given my detailed instructions! I needed to turn the situation around... I looked at the bouquet again and decided to conquer it.
And now for some fun news! It's Week 2 here of my Macro Monday Blog, and I'm thrilled to share the work of a talented macro photographer, Tiffany Kelly! Please do visit her here to see her gorgeous share this week.
