Snowdrops 2015

Snowdrops – a reason for the first outdoor macro field trip of 2015.   Garston Wood was my location of choice for the trip, as there is a small patch there and the reserve is normally quiet at this time of year.

I packed out the bag with my Canon 650D, Canon 100mm F2.8 USM Macro Lens  & some coloured card and tripod to have a play about with different effects, having not tried this with snowdrops before.

The first few shots I took using natural backgrounds – this one being my favourite.

Onto the coloured card images – firstly a simple shot of two, with a yellow card in the background.

Then I found a larger patch, focused on the front, allowing the back ones to blur out.  Here are the results.
