Alteration of the seedball background

I was not satisfied about the room at the top of the photo.
So I altered it with Paint Shop and add at the top of the photo I added more space.
I think it is much more in balance this way.

Sonchus oleraceus close up photos

I love those fluffy balls full of seeds. Just ordinaire weed and we pull it out in our garden.
But the flowers are lovely and so are the seeds flying in the wind.

I took these photos with a macro lens 90mm and my Sony a300.
For the photo of the seedball I used an umbrella and flash.
With the umbrella I covered the flash to get soft light.

Tomorrow I receive some extension tubes. I want to take even more close up/macro photos.
A real challenge but I love to experiment.

photography close up and macro

Summer and there is no painting course, so it is time for another hobby of mine: taking photos.
Especcially close up and macro. Not easy and some time frustrating.
I took some very small cherry tomatoes, put them on a mirror and here it is.


I took also some macro photos of flowers. Another challenge, mostly the wind. Never no wind at all here in The Netherlands.
So I am very proud of these three photos. The flowers are really tiny.

Blue berry folowers




flowers of a wild garlic



geranium, also very tiny
