There is something about last year’s hydrangea that stops me in my tracks. The petals of the spent flowers are so paper like. My family and I were out to lunch at an artsy cool place called the Gumboot Restaurant and Cafe in Roberts Creek, British Columbia. I literally stopped on our way in, took out my gear and spent a few minutes composing this shot. I think lunch tasted all the sweeter after this moment.

Artist’s Finishing Recommendations:
To augment the colours in this piece I recommend the Large size with the box frame in Mocha and Off White matting. There are lots of options to chose from so feel free to customize to enhance your decor.

Lisa Knechtel specializes in dramatic macro works. Known for the striking use of colour and her ability to make minute detail relatable, she refers to her artistic pursuits as ‘obsession’ vs. ‘inspiration’.

    love that…look at that DoF…

  • I love my micro lens! It rocks that I can be at F11 for the clarity and still know I am going to only focus on what I want to.
