close up of field flowers

by Photo TipMan



I was on the way to a beach shoot and had to stop when I saw this filed of flowers. Not quite true macro, but I still dig the photo.

The flowers reminded me of strawberries. I took a few close ones and then included the barn as part of a few photos too.

There was just a hint of the sun left as it was sinking behind a line of trees to the west of this field.
Five minutes earlier it was likely a little too bright and just after this photo was taken, it was gone.

Timing is everything when you shoot early or late in the day.

close up photography from texas

by Carol
(Texas)


This macro photograph was taken in Texas.

This looks to be an aberrant (diverging from the normal type) Southern Oak Hairstreak (Satyrium favonius). They are a single brooded species that are on the wing right now (just had a normal one in my yard). I've seen several instances of this aberration in this species and have photos and a specimen. Most likely it is caused by temperature fluctuations as the butterfly is developing, but that's only a guess.

Abstract close-up of cut cabbage

I am always looking for ideas where I can get an interesting photo of an ordinary object by going into macro mode.

Kitchen items and food are always readily available to inspire a new concept for a close-up shot in a short time frame.

I saw a food commercial on television and one of the video clips was a close-up of a cabbage being cut. I made a mental note to photograph a red cabbage the next time one was available.

Well my lovely bride (and talented cook) planned a meal of corned beef and cabbage, so I knew I was in luck. I split the cabbage head right down the middle and revealed all of these cool patterns and textures.

This photo was one that appealed to me a bit more than some of the others, so I posed it here.

PLEASE, give me some feedback on this image.
