Regular Random – Gerbera, Five minutes with my Macro

Welcome again to another RegularRandom where we:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to 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

It’s been a long time between flowers, or so it seems lately, so it was nice to just sit for a few minutes with my macro lens, especially after yesterdays Macro & Still Life Workshop; as I did not really get to shoot. So I took home a few flowers and spent some time this morning with them. First up is the Gerbera, I do adore these flowers, so simple, so elegant and they always make me smile.

This was shot on black perspex on a table and I just moved around, I had one studio light with a soft box on it, plus some natural light as well, and don’t forget the water spray bottle. Ah……pure bliss, my Zen meditation for the day.
