Macro flowers

For Gurushots I once again went into my photography past. I share a number of macros of flowers here. Partly new edits. The first photo is an adaptation of a photo that I did not share on the internet before. I do not know what it’s called. I have seen it in different tropical gardens. Among others in Burgers bush. There is also this picture taken in October 2016. If you know how this tree / shrub / plant is called, I like to hear it. They always hang high, at eye level. Unfortunately, I have never paid attention to what the rest of the plant looks like. Not wise 😛

Minimalism

Since a while I am active on GuruShots.com. There are always different challenges where you are in competition with other photographers. There are all kinds of topics. At the moment, among other things, I participate in the subject of Minimalism. I share here the photos I have sent.

About GuruShots.com, I say one thing: Think before you start. It is expensive. I am so stubborn now that I want to become a Guru. But I advise nobody to start with it. It does not really bring you much, maybeinspiration. Nothing more.

A wild hair day

Yep, I bought some flowers today. One of them is this gerbera. A gerbera with a wild hair day. Wonderful colors and amazing shapes. I made loads of photos of it.

Hope you’ll like them 🙂

Monochrome flowers

Flowers are one of my favorite subjects for photography. I always have flowers in my house. Either on a vase or my orchids are in bloom. Colors are an important reason for why I like them, but editing to monochrome is great to. It becomes more about shape. And the shapes of flowers are amazing too 🙂

Flowers on black

If you have been following me a bit longer, you know I love to edit my photos “On black”. I feel many subjects look better when the are placed on a black backgound. This time I’m sharing flowers on a black backgound. Ik hope you’ll like them.
