About Flowers Macro World - Feel free to join us!
It's a Small World After All - the Flowers Macro World.
Nowadays, flowers play an important role in social behaviour, and are commercially available all year; they are gifts expressing affection, gratitude, celebration, congratulation, mourning, or apology, and are used as decoration at both personal and public events. Weddings and funerals would be inconceivable without them.
Flowers make excellent photographic subjects for a variety of reasons: they are static (on a calm day) colorful, ever changing, and we have the choice of a wide seasonal variation.
Flowers and leaves alike possess pleasing symmetry, as well as a broad spectrum of shade and texture. Variants in sunlight/shade affect their appearance, as does the difference before and after rain - or the judicious application of a fine water spray! Flowers may fall within the parameters of weedy, through luscious, to blowsy. Their centers can provide scope for some curiously erotic imagery via symbolic spikes and folds. The thistle and allium families, with their sharp edges and spheres, are geometric, and grasses are capable of emulating a row of soldiers, or a waving sea of graceful stems. Tree bark may resemble anything from elephant hide to an aerial landscape map.
The variety of plant life is infinite, from the waxy blooms of the water lily to the delicacy of the fuchsia, from the first bright green unfurling leaves in spring to the crisp russet curls that result when the summer moisture has gone; there is massive scope to use one's imagination in creating exciting, different images.
Everyone will have a favorite place to photograph natures' bounty, be it within domestic gardens, recreation grounds, by river or shoreline, or perhaps in the more formal surroundings of botanical parks.
