Illusion of a Tropical Dream - (experiment)

by Henk Hoekstra October. 16, 2009 13036 views

I mentioned earlier that I often use colored paper as a background in my macro's. Also I try to use other materials in combination with that. These 2 pictures are a result of what you'll see in #3.
Just play with everything your camera offers. When you try this outside, be sure that there is no wind :). Maybe you will be rewarded for your effort. In my case, with # 2 , a 2nd place in a photocontest. :)

Success !!

Thank you for yours advices, I love macro flowers. I tried some natural background (like pansy flower) for dandelion flowers but not paper. Very interesting...and wonderful result !
