"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

Macro Abstract

Have been trying to keep up with this blog, and to go down the list and visit about 10 other blogs per day while doing a million other things. Still, I am sort of managing in keeping up with it!

This is a abstract macro type shot that I took yesterday, and I am trying to write up a article on how I approach abstracts in the world of macro, and maybe our Sr. Editor over at NSN can use it, … plus I am working on a idea or two that may be something to persue farther with the newspaper.

This is a abstract shot deep within the throat of a daylily flower right where the pistil and stamens emerge from the throat. I have many more similar to this, and will get to uploading them to my portfolio later.
They are fun and easy to do!

Everyone take care, and we will see you next week sometime!

  3. Mike,
    You need to be looking for a publisher. Do a book like Tony Sweet’s on flowers. He combines his photos with a description on how he did it. You could easily pull out your many comments from this blog, spiff ’em up a bit, match them with the appropriate photos — and you’ve have a publishable book.

  4. Another idea — self publish a book or CD. Self publishing a book may be a lot of work, but Michael Reichmann just did it. Art Morris and John Shaw just came out with books on CD. They are selling them direct. That would be a good way to get started.

    Your comments are very insightful. I learn something. I’m entertained. Your blog is popular. That should tell you that people are interested in reading it as well as looking at the photos.

  6. This is a very beautifully colored piece, almost relaxing. Feels like a dream.

    I appreciate the time you take out of your schedule to stop by and visit, and comment.

    I too try to keep up with online projects, as well everything I do offline. Sometimes it is rather daunting isn’t it?

    I look forward to the work and tips that you share. Keep them coming (when you can). They are very much appreciated.

  11. I love the colors. Reminds me of Rainbow Sherbet! That’s not a bad thing. Lots of good child memories involve sherbet.
