Flower Power: Capturing Nature In All Its Glory

Hi, all! I hope your week is going smoothly, and I suppose, like me, you might wish the weekend would be upon us already. Patience is a virtue, isn’t that what they always say?

Anyway, recently I’ve been experimenting with close up shots, with my incredible 70-300 mm lens. The photographs have actually been coming out reasonably well. I’m quite pleased with the results. I’ve found it quite enthralling to capture something incredibly close up, to capture it in all its glory. There’s just something about focusing on something, and capturing the stillness. As you all know, my infatuation (more like obsession) with Nature has become apparent, and I have really enjoyed capturing landscapes. But, for a while I might focus (ha, focus. Photographer joke. Cue the applause.) on close up images of nature, varying from flowers, trees, animals, anything; they’re quite beautiful. I suppose it’s also a way of testing my capabilities, and pushing myself to experiment more.

It’s certainly one thing that I will continue to do on this adventure, experiment with all aspects of Photography. That way, I can cross everything off my list, and say proudly ‘I did that’. Yes, this picture might not be the most excitable, but it’s the little things that catch my eye. The gentle and still flowers that are introducing themselves to the world, deserve to be photographed. Maybe that’s just my inner hippie talking, but I like to photograph anything that usually wouldn’t be considered as enticing.

So, with all that rambling, I shall bid you goodbye, and I hope you have a splendid evening, morning, afternoon, wherever you are. Tomorrow, I have no idea what I’ll be posting, but I predict it will be something to do with Nature (what a surprise).

My name is Alice Frawley, and I am currently located in little old Ireland. I am a Photography enthusiast, and intend to make this my career, no matter how long it takes. To transform a hobby into a career, could potentially be the best decision of my life. Photography has been my passion, for quite some time now, and I am absolutely desperate to get myself out there, and show the world my photographs. This is a completely new journey for me to embark on.
