I’ve been going back through my old flower photos because there is nothing to shoot here in Massachusetts in February. I found this photo I took almost 4 years ago at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, MA and tried many different effects on it. This was one of the earlier attempts, but I like it the best. I used Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Monday Morning filter and two French Kiss Textures (Purple Grunge and Muse).

Nikon D80 with 60mm f/2.8 micro lens.

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    Your combination of effects and textures works very well with this flower, and I love your answer to “nothing to shoot.” Rather like turning lemons into lemonade. :)

  • Thank you so much, Celeste. I like that – turning lemons into lemonade! I’ll be back in the archives tomorrow!
