My last few photos have been a little dull and gloomy, so I’m going the traditional spring flowers route for a slight change. These are pretty straightforward shots of pretty ordinary flowers so I apologize for that. I like to take my time when shooting flowers to come up with an artful approach to the shot. These were shot at a local business that has a garden beside the building. As I said in past posts, spring is a little slow coming this year so there were just a few early blooming flowers to shoot. I was limited by a fence to how close I could get so that’s why I couldn’t try different takes. I do see potential in the hyacinths for a good shot so I’m going to keep my eye out for some to shoot later. For my 365 photo, I did add a touch of orton effect in processing to jazz it up a little, though the out of camera jpeg was decent on its own. Spring No. 2 shot with a DA55-330 and Spring No.3 was shot with my Super-Takumar 50mm. I decided to try a square crop on the B&W shot because of the single flower subject.
