Welcome to our Serenity Project for the month of April 2018. The Serenity project is a collaborative photography project in which we want to share images that convey peace and calm.
One of my favorite things to do is macro photography. Since I started this journey in 2016, it has become clear to me that macro photography is truly a place of zen for me. I forget everything around me. I have had many failures, but that is totally okay. When you get an image that speaks to you, it is worth all the failures.
This month I tried something new to me - water & oil macro photography. For this art of macro you will need a lot of patience...trust me. I took a huge amount of images to get some really good ones. Two Sunday's ago, I shared my first images of water & oil macro photography. I have to say that they were probably some of best macro images I took over the last 2 years. Here is one of the Sunday 'session' (I had this one printed as a 16 x 20 by Color Inc - and the colors are just smashing in print).
I wanted to try different colors, so I used some of my other prints below the water bowl of water & oil. But I have to say that the reds and orange color combo was my favorite. Here are some I took with other colors. The first two images were actually taken outdoors on my patio so that I did not have to raise my ISO so much.

Thank you for stopping by today; until next time, keep calm and photograph outside your comfort zone.
