Day 12 of 30 day Photography Challenge

Today I received macro extension tubes in the mail. I was so excited to try them out. I attached my lensbaby lens to them and experimented and was truly amazed at the results. I’ve never been one for closeup photography though this has really opened a whole new world. The detail in objects is truly amazing and i think a post solely devoted to this new equipment and photos is needed.

When i got home it was raining so a wander in the garden in between rain showers. I could probably count on my hands the amount of time i’ve photographed flowers. I find them beautiful they just don’t challenge me creatively, unless you try and capture them through a rain drop which I attempted though failed. This flower however fascinated me not sure what it is. Lots of bokeh and a tiny bit of focus to satisfy my creativity.

Photo of the Week

imageLast weeks most popular photo from my 366 Project on my Instagram account is this Seascape at St Andrews Beach on the Mornington Peninsula. I have taken a few photos at this Beach for my project and although this Beach doesn’t offer a lot in great rock features that a lot of the other local Ocean Beaches do, it’s easy access is great for last minute Sunset Pics like this.

Landscape Challenge

Instead of doing my regular Photo of the week this week I’m participating in CCY Photo  #21 Landscape Challenge.  Most of the photos are composed using the rule of thirds I challenged myself by including an element in the foreground something I don’t usually do. The photo below was the most popular photo this week , which ones your favourite I’d love to know. ?imageimageimageimageimageimage

 

Photo of the Week

This Weeks photo of the week was inspired by the theme “book”. I have taken a couple of photos of this particular tree before and had to revisit it for what I visioned. I hope you enjoy it.image
