Phoneography: Macro – Bouquet Central

When I photographed the bouquet my husband gave me for my post on diversity, I took a few macro shots of the centers of the flowers.

It’s macro Monday for the phoneography challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally. I don’t have a special macro lens for my iPhone 4 so I can’t get as close as I’d like to the subject before it gets blurry. I could crop the image, and usually do, but I still need as sharp an image as possible.

In my cropping and use of blur and/or vignette I tried to move the photos in an abstract direction. The images are still recognizable as flowers, but hopefully the eye sees them from a different perspective.

As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. Please visit Lens and Pens by Sally to see some amazing macro phoneograpy.

I bet my husband didn’t imagine he’d get so much mileage from this one bouquet! Thank you sweetie!

    Thanks so much Y! Yes they do take some editing, mostly because I keep my bouquets on the marble counter in between the two sinks in our outer bathroom. Right in front of a mirror. On the one hand the mirror expands the bouquet, on the other, sometimes I catch mouthwash, hanging robes or cough medicine in the shots!

    really enjoyed these photos. 3rd one is my favorite, but all are so clear and close up. 🙂 great editing work and when I see these photos – I am shocked at how far phone cameras have come over the years. well lot sod people post with their phone photos – and ask it is not unusually – but this post – with this clarity – really made me in awe (had the be the editing too) lol.

    Thank you Sally! That’s interesting about the second one. I like the little curl on the petal in the upper right.

    I like them all. The second one has a composition that makes me stay longer, and enjoy the entire image. Happy Phoneography Challenge.

I'd love to hear from you!
