Continuing from last week, in this post are close-up images of a sunflower and daisy bouquet focusing on line, color, and shape. I am always surprised at how different a subject looks through an extreme macro lens…..who knew that the edge of a sunflower petal could have such grace and movement?
I learned that direction and flow matter intensely when you focus on a micro element of a subject. Image if this edge of this petal cut straight across the middle of the frame? It would be static and boring. Exploring a subject to find an angle that accentuates its basic elements is not quick or obvious……I must have spent close to an hour before I took this frame; every minute opened my eyes to seeing sunflowers and daisies differently.
