Perspective: Flowering Spring Trees

May 11, 2015  •  1 Comment

It doesn't matter that I have ten zillion pictures of flowering trees, taking these shots each year is irresistible and my own talisman of spring's arrival.  Im sharing a few shots that feature unique techniques to differentiate them from the typical flower pics. Most of these were shot with my favorite Canon macro L-series lens:  the 100 mm f/2.8 L IS macro.

 

Shooting directly into the setting sun without losing detail is a tricky feat:

 

I love black/white and I love color.  Who says you can't have the best of both worlds?

 

Shooting white on white isn't easy but gives an interesting result with varying tones:

 

Controlling depth of field with multiple subjects--while keeping bokeh in the background--is walking a fine line:

 

Shooting as the sun is rising gives pictures a calm, ethereal effect with a touch of morning dew:

Oh Maureen, the pictures are the best I have ever seen! I love how the dew dots the cherry blossoms with pristine perfection. The natural positioning of the flowers make them look like the lilies of the trees. These photos are so crisp, and the white flowers remind me of cream. The purple, black and white one is exceptional, especially how you managed to capture the beauty where the two worlds collide.
I look forward to seeing your work, as you are always my favorite photographer!
