Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Taken with a Canon 5D Mark II with a Leica 100mm macro and adaptor.
Enhanced in Photoshop.

For The Curious Ones:
Early images were taken with a Canon Rebel XTi and recently with a Canon 5D Mark II -- both with a Leica 100mm macro lens and adaptor. I try to shoot in bright sunlight at about 1:30 p.m. at 1/1000second and then exposure bracket at /8 or f/11 or f/16 at ISO 800. -- Doug Norkum

    Exquisite! How do you get these amazing backgrounds with the suspended flowers popping off the page? LOL! Of course, this is a secret! In short, your photographs are perfectly gorgeous! Fave, Maggie

  • In the past I have gone to the Hamilton, Montreal and Niagara Britannica Gardens to photoshoot. If the backgrounds are deemed to be distracting, then, I use Photoshop to remove them! You may also be interested to know that I spray them with a very fine mist of clean water to get the early morning dew effect and to help with the focussing of the image.

    Just love the beauty here. Welcome to Vavoom. So nice to have you join us Doug. I don’t suppose you ever captured a Peace Rose? Just love those:)

  • Thank you Donna and I’ll look for that Peace Rose. Sometimes I am not sure of their name if they look somewhat similar.
