Macro Flowers

10 Oct

I spent a bit of time today pottering with my container garden.  Filling pots with colour, planting a few new plants and generally having fun playing in the dirt.  Of course the next step after planting flowers is to take photos of them.

The first photo I didn’t take.  It has been taken with our new Tough Camera an Olympus TG-3, bought for snorkelling photos but it’s had it’s first outing at the Antarctic Circle.  Might actually be He Who Suffers first ‘selfie’ taken in earnest.

Meanwhile back in the real world, I read an article today about taking great photos doesn’t depend on the camera you use, that it really comes back to the operator knowing how to take a good photo and knowing how to use post processing to tweak the image to more accurately reflect what your eye saw.  With this in mind I had a play with our landscape westerly view – all binned, got the composition wrong – and a photo of my miniature capsicum.  Mini-capsicum with a crop ‘wins’.  My first crop in Light Room.
