Studio 2 offers new challenges. The first assignment was to photograph a “grab bag” item. All the items were mundane, every day objects. We were to photograph it in a way that made the object look like art, like a featured image in a magazine. So, can you guess which object I had to photograph? And what lighting style I chose?
This large, beautiful Dragonfruit had a really cute, fuzzy, curled, green leaf. It fascinated me. Pitaya are a favorite subject of mine, both to photograph and to eat! I’m not quite done with the photographing part yet, but it does look like a delicious fruit. Presenting: the curly, fuzzy, cute green leaf!
June 2017, with tripod, natural light and a new macro lens, I explored the shape and texture of one dragonfruit, or pitaya.

I love Spring Flowers! Every year I collect an album of images from my yard, forest preserves and the Arboretum.
My clump of Snowdrops was in full bloom, and using the macro lens with a shallow depth of field, I focused on different blossoms in each image. I was on the ground and driveway laying down and scooting around to get different angles. My neighbors must have thought I was crazy! Which do you like best?
