Calla Lily Study – Lensbaby Blog Circle (June)

June 25, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

What do you do when you wake up on the morning of a planned garden photography outing to hear the travel news announcing major hold ups on the two motorways you could take and then look out the window and find it’s raining despite that not being the weather forecast?

My solution was to pop to the supermarket and buy a calla lily plant and then to remind myself of my theme for the year “embracing the blur”. Armed with the Velvet 85, Sweet 80 and 50, macro converters and filters I set about creating a set of images to celebrate the lines, curves and colour of the flowers and at the same time embracing the blur and letting go of any urges to produce a conventional set of images.
