Perennial Beauties

Perennial beauties at the Garden. I’m actually getting familiar with them, and expect to see them.

And because it is the same orchids each year, I try to do a different theme each visit.  This year, I decided to just use the NIkon 105mm and take macro shots of the orchids and plants.  A different challenge, as it does make you think about the composition of a shot.

It’s not wide enough to take a shot of a whole piece unless you step back a distance.

Sometimes I’m too close that I still have to step back because I wasn’t liking the macro shot.  Or maybe I just didn’t have my settings right …

Either way, it was a good learning exercise in photography.  Hope you enjoy the series.
