Macro Monday ~ Volume 25

A new year, a new hope. I am not sure what that a new year always makes us feel a new beginning. But I live by the motto that every day is a new beginning. However, with a new year beginning, I have some new goals set. One of them is to refine my style and work finding my ‘voice’ in the photography world. One thing I know for sure is that I want to work toward working with more models. That is where where my heart always has been. We will see what happens.

No matter what will happen in 2017, macro photography will always have a big place in my heart. So, today I am sharing one my images that I took earlier this month. The time was right before sunset, and I like the soft light right before sundown.

Settings: SS 1/100 – f7.1 – ISO 1000 – Tamron Macro Lens

  1. This is beautiful Iris! I love the soft, golden light. We are missing the sunshine here in Michigan this time of year so I’m glad I have your work to look forward to!

Macro Monday ~ Volume 24

On Tuesday I met up with follow CM member and sweet friend, Eileen Critchley. We chose to meet at the Desert Botanical Garden. Unfortunately I do not get too often to visit the garden. My hope is that I will go more often in 2017.

This orange poppy was beautiful and in a perfect spot. There were not too many distractions around it, which made it much easier for me to single it out and grab focus on the front petal.

Settings: SS 1/640 – f7.1 – ISO 500 – Tamron Macro Lens

For the most part, my go-to aperture seems to be f7.1. Obviously, in 2017 I need to put more effort in shooting with a different aperture.

Macro Monday – Volume 23

I have been MIA for a month due to other photography projects that I have been working on. At the end of the year I will share some of my favorites from these projects. However, it was time for me to get my Tamron macro lens back on my camera. I missed having to slow down on my shots; macro photography does that.

Since it is Christmas time, I was looking for something red to photograph and found these beautiful two-color pom mums. The deep red/purple/magenta really makes me think of Christmas.

In most cases, I do not play with my shadows to create the matte look, however this time I felled compelled to ‘squish’ my shadows for the softer look.

Settings: SS 1/200 – f7.1 – ISO 500 – Tamron Macro Lens
