Looking at Flowers through a Macro Lens

For people who have not a beautiful garden or do not have the opportunity to move around and to get to a garden it is a blessing that they may find the modern tools of the computer and internet by which the world can come unto their doorstep, in case they have enough money to pay for that internet.

For those who look forward to see those beauties it is a blessing that there are so many photographers willing to share that what is unreachable for them. With gratitude we too want to share the macro visions and that what others can capture to portray the beauty of this miraculous world.

Thanks to all those people who allow their articles and photo’s to be reblogged and for us to give so many more people the opportunity to come to know those ‘magicians’ who can use a camera so handy.

Leanne Cole is a Fine Art Photographer who specializes in Fine Art images of Architecture and the Environment. She has several Workshops and Services that are all designed to help you learn photography and how to use your camera to its best capabilities. Even when people can not come to her classes in Melbourne, she is providing ‘Online Photography and Editing Classes’.

When she is somewhere to share her art she uses the opportunity to make beautiful pictures which are also presented on her blog. She manages to bring the viewer in different moods by the different shades of light which may make her to create great photos. Have also a look at “Love to be by the seaside” where she shows how she can play with that light.

We may say that

the photograph is an object resulting from a physical and chemical process

but behind the lens of the camera has to be the very good eye of an artistic person to bring magic on the two dimensional paper.

  • Also

The object has been created but before it can be experienced by a viewer, it must undergo more changes. First and foremost, it must be developed and most likely printed. Finally, it should be mounted and displayed, which provides the photograph with context. All of these additional changes can add or detract from the object in various ways, but the original information present in the photograph (artistic manipulation not withstanding) has not changed. It is still a record of what was in front of the lens when the photo was taken. {A Photograph is an Experience}

  • Most photography not anymore the exchange of chemicals, but photons striking a silicon chip and are read as an electrical signal, which gets encoded digitally.

Though digital, this is still an imprint of the light that entered through the lens. The light initiated a physical process that resulted in a representation of itself, albeit in binary code. The light gets ‘encoded’ regardless if that information is encoded in silver halide crystals or in bits. So is this the essence of a photograph, information that can be decoded into a visual medium? {A Photograph is an Experience}

  • Without the experienced and qualified eye even the most expensive digital camera is nothing.

Luckily photography is still an art-form where we do need an artist behind the lens.

Get the lenses out to getting closer again

With Spring we get reminded to do things all anew. It is a new start for new life, in nature and perhaps also in our souls.

We like watching beautiful sites and beautiful pictures. For those who are bounded on their wheelchair or are very limited in going places (like having limited financial means) the internet may provide them a view or window on the world. We are thankful for those photographers who want to share with us their views on this beautiful world. We do not know if they are aware that with their craft they can share the beauties of the Divine Creator His wonderworks. But at least He can use them to bring people to see that what He provides for the human beings, who can enjoy it or forget to look at it and miss a lot in their life.

For those wanting to catch the inedible beauty the world is offering it is not so easy to put it on a two dimensional piece of paper. When they want to get up close to their subject they shall need to make sure that the key elements are in focus.

Small blue green flowers WordPress site The Earth laughs in flowers writes in  Garden-photography get a little closer:

Using a dedicated macro lens you will find that only a millimetre or two from front to back will be pin sharp. If you are struggling to keep key elements in focus try shooting from a different angle and keep the background out of focus.

Extension tubes for SLR camera lenses. An extension tube attaches to the body of a single-lens reflex camera; the lens attaches to the tube. Extension tubes come in various lengths and contain no glass (as the pen indicates). These use bayonet-type lens mounts. Русский: Макро-кольца для зеркальных фотоаппаратов с байонетным креплением.

In life as in photography one has to focus on the right things and look for the essentials. In life we do have to look for important matters but also have to take care to see that we do not unbalance the natural matters. Natural subjects with eye-catching textures may pull your attention for putting it on the imaginary memory. Only when we see the total picture in life we can come to concentrate on the finer details, the same with photography.

When we do not have a garden of our own we may be lucky when we can manage to see gardens caught on the little frames, squeezed a few specimens into pots to adorn front ‘patio’s’ .

Jude, the author of Travel Words, brings a a collection of her travel notes and diaries over the years, having lived in many different places both in the UK and abroad, including brief spells working as an Au Pair in Switzerland and in a Hotel in Norway followed by 12 years living in South Africa. Her childhood vision was to emigrate to Australia, but although she came close to it on several occasions she, like perhaps many of us who wanted to emigrate to warmer places. She now has her eldest son who now lives there which she is able to visit on several occasions and considering it her spiritual birthplace. Not many can be so lucky to have that opportunity.

If we are right, she also presents Small blue green macro and 60 mm a World in miniature.

You may have ea look at her sites and awe at the beauties she know to capture.
