Photography - Foster Gardens

Today's shoot was to practice macro photography. The cloudy and drizzling weather forced me to adjust the white balance settings which made a huge difference in the coloring of the foliage and flowers. I borrowed a heavy duty pro-tripod with fancy leg and neck settings that allow one to get very close to the subject matter. It was heavy and alot of work to set up each shot. I prefer taking macro shots by hand.

I really liked the almost B/W skeletal leaf shot, the ferns,and the one where you got the shadow of the grasshopper. Nice macro outing, it makes you think of things differently. Nice treasure hunt.
