2014—90 Degrees

The gorgeous red fuchsia hanging on the the patio at my brother’s house in Redding drew me outside the other morning. I had my macro lens on the D800 and wanted closeups of just the flower. I took several shots of the flower but wasn’t really excited about the shots until I walked around it 90 degrees and saw the gorgeous back light.

Here are two shots of the same flower. They are both nice but I love the drama of the second, including the tiny web. Just turning 90 degrees made such a huge difference. I sometimes forget this simple rule of photography: just move around a bit…it can make a huge difference.
