I was wandering around my backyard one afternoon when I spotted this hibiscus flower. I don’t know where there is a hibiscus plant nearby, I certainly don’t have one, but there it was, already cut and waiting to be photographed. I took it to my glass top table to get some shots.
I’ve had an enormous amount of fun doing some extreme edits here as well as the “normal” editing that I always do to the photos. I also had to play with some dramatic black and white edits.
For these shots, I used my Olympus OMD EM5 with the 60mm macro (120mm equivalent). I have come to realise that I will miss my glass table when I leave here, so I will have to make sure my new table has a similar top. Of course, a still life shoot would not be the same without GG getting involved. It was a very windy afternoon and I turned my back for a few seconds and this is what happened:
I hope you’re having a fun week. I’m adding these shots to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic.
Last minute addition!!
