Gardens Plus

At the beginning of July, our camera club visited a local garden store called Gardens Plus. The owners were gracious enough to let about 20 photographers walk about the property with tripods and gear to try and capture some interesting photos. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to get out with the Crown Graphic…

A Couple Flower Photos

Starting to build-up quite a backlog of blog posts… A couple weeks ago, while doing some shooting in Del Crary Park in downtown Peterborough, I took these two photos with my Pentax MX and a roll of Ilford FP4 Plus 125. I was playing around with the macro lens (before I sold it). Anyways, I…

Macro Shots of Flowers

As mentioned in the previous post, I recently took a bunch of macro shots of flowers. I was simply trying not to capture the flower as a whole, but a certain part of it – whether it be the colour, contrast or texture.
