It was so nice this week to have my daughter home on winter vacation. We didn't have to rush out in the mornings or brave the elements. One thing we did this week was to work on her project for next weeks science fair. For the project she wanted a close up photo of a carnation that showed the veins that water travels to reach the petals.
One thing I don't have for my digital camera a macro lens, but do have a macro lens for my old 35mm film camera. I decided to try a technique called "free lensing". This is when you hold the lens in front of the camera instead of attaching it. It causes a slight blur on the edges and gives you a softer image. You can then tilt the lense or angle it to create the effect you want.
I was so happy with the results, I decided to use the photo for this weeks theme, delicate.
Be sure to check out my friend LeAnn Rehm Photography to see her delicate themed photo.
