I spent much longer than five minutes with these beauties, so I’m just sharing a five-minute stint with you in this post. I’ll share some other, more intricate photos in other posts.
But for today’s RegularRandom, let’s start with the rules:
- choose a subject or a scene
- spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
- try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
- have fun!
- tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post
I’ve had a particularly difficult couple of weeks at work and one of my colleagues, who has become a firm friend, sent me these gorgeous sunflowers to add a little sunshine to my day. So lovely, it’s just like her to think of doing something like this, although it was a huge surprise to receive them. Especially on Friday, an incredibly hard day for me. More about that later, but for now, let’s get into the five minutes of sunny goodness.
First, here’s the complete view, because you must know by now that I immediately switched to macro and went to town shooting these 🙂
These first two shots are with the 17mm (35mm equivalent) lens.
All subsequent shots are with my 60mm macro (120mm equivalent) and my absolute favourite lens.
