Experiments with Macro Photography

Yes, I’m trying to be “artistic” again. And I’m also playing around with the “Super Macro” mode on my camera.

I think I just enjoy photographing flowers – at least they don’t move! (Well, most of the time!)

As usual, just click on any of these images to go to the large size image over at Flickr.

Cliché, I know, what with the water droplets and everything… but still, I think it came out well. You can really see the texture of the flower petals!

This one was made using a neat effect in Google’s Picasa software (which is what I use to organize my photos). It’s called “Focal B&W” and it seems like it was just made for flower photography!

With a perfect rose blossom like that, how could I resist?

A wise man once said that sometimes B&W is better than color. This one looked fantastically dull when I took it initially, but once I converted it to B&W, it suddenly seemed… better. Somehow.

Anyway, that’s all the flower photography I have for now. Enjoy!
