"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

Yellow Wildflowers, Low Perspective.

It’s still a bit tough trying to find something to write about, but I can always go through my files and maybe come up with something that I have yet to post which hopefully can give another individual some ideas that they can try out in the future.

The following image is nothing more than a yellow wildflower found out in the fields but using a very low perspective and shooting through the existing foliage that was right in front of the lens.

  6. Michael;
    Please please don’t stop writing. I so much enjoy both your narrative, and the wonderful images you create. Every time you post something new, I go out and try to duplicate it myself. Never with the impact and beauty of your work.
    Maybe someday…..

  9. Thanks again everyone. Appreciate it!

    Hey Peter,
    Oh, … I want stop writing I don’t think, but it’s just that lately it seems that I have nothing new to write about.
    I try to stay away from the Canon vs Nikon, Mac vs PC, this sensor vs that sensor type writings, so I am somewhat limited to what and/or how I shoot certain things and maybe why I shoot it. So with that, I am somewhat limited and feel like everything I want to say has already been said.

    Hopefully I will come up with something a bit different here soon, ….. maybe! :)

    Thanks again gang,

  10. Nice site, I enjoyed looking at your photos..as far aw writing, sometimes writing about the memories or thoughts invoked by an image gets me to what I want to write about. just my 2 cents

  11. Your images always have that unusual look to them that I love.
    So, those patterns are from grass right in front of the lens? How close is the foliage in comparison to the subject?

  12. Thanks Richard! :)

    Yes, those darker streaks are thin blades of grass that is located between the flower and the lens.
    If I remember correctly, those blades of grass were about 2ft away from the lens, with the flower about 2ft behind the blades of grass.
