I was able to get some shots in with my macro lens of the Lily that was in the bouquet that my daughter and son-in-law sent me on Mother’s Day……….JUST before I took my camera to the shop. And they had the nerve to send it to Nikon for repair!! What in the world will I do without it?
You’ll probably be seeing some images shot with my Nikon Coolpix (circa 1999) IF I can remember how to use it. (<……..insert frown here)
This first image, I wanted to get the tiny spiky things on the petals of the Lily. I processed in Lightroom and added a soft vignette to put more focus on the petal. I used my Tamron 90mm macro lens and my tripod.
Image #2 was focusing on the brown “anthers” at the tops of the “stamen”. I bet you didn’t realize you’d get a biology lesson today, did you? Truth be told, it’s been too many years since I had Biology and I couldn’t remember the parts.
Again, I added a vignette in Lightroom to put added focus on these parts.
And since I didn’t get an image of the entire flower (because one of the petals got torn off – my fault), I cropped this next image and also added a warming photo filter adjustment and changed it to a pink color. I was actually just playing around with various settings but I rather liked it with this filter.
So…….that’s my share for today and I hope you enjoyed the macro……..and the Biology lesson.
Until I see you again using my Nikon Coolpix…..
Hugs and Have A Creative Day!
