It is time for another photography prompt! I’m always seeking new prompts and new ideas to keep me thinking about my craft. I’ve tried scavenger hunts, contests, and a variety of fun ideas just to keep my juices flowing. I think added the macro lens to my gear lineup recently has opened up all new possibilities for me to stretch my creative flow. I have found I really enjoy photographing flowers. Capturing details at weddings is tremendously easier and a whole lot more fun these days as well. I could get carried away! But I have to remember I am on the job and I need to get on to the next thing.
On Saturday I took a few extra moments with the bride’s bouquet. I knew MCP’s weekly photo prompt was all about “nature.” I felt these gorgeous flowers fit the bill. After I took my usual shots of the entire bouquet, which I will share soon, I switched to my macro lens and got close to a few particular roses in the bunch. This is what I captured.
I’m working on a collection of macro photographs for an upcoming blog series. Stay tuned! Happy Wednesday and as always… leave a comment and tell me what you think!
