Multiple exposure and Macro week

Welcome back for a week in pictures and wanted to push myself and experiment a bit more this time in the areas of multiple exposure and macro. A little trip to the botanical garden in Lund provided some amazing material for this weeks photos.

Lets start off with a simple macro shot that I found very haunting and beautiful in all its simplicity.

‘Shyness’
Canon 6d, 100mm Macro, f/3,2 ISO 200, 1/2500sec

Sometimes you come across flowers that almost speak to you and just after rainfall in combination with some strong winds you can even bring out the shyness in them. Made it into a black and white to make it more dramatic and I really like the feel it creates.

‘Monet’s muse’
Canon 6d, 100mm Macro, f/4 ISO 400, 1/200sec

Decided to start experimenting a bit more within the area of multiple exposure in camera. Love everything about it as you can transmit feelings and concepts on a whole different level. Wanted to play a bit on the famous waterlilies of Monet in combination with the whole concept of a muse and this was the result.

When today’s world can be a bit disgusting and disheartening at times it can be a wonderful thing to explore our intriguing nature through a macro lens. This little fellow balanced for a long time so I had a couple of minutes to get in really close and finally get the shot that I wanted. So happy with the incredible focus and also managing to pull of somewhat of a composition too.

Back to multiple exposure experiments and wanted to do something on the actual visit to the beautiful Botanical garden in Lund and really happy with what in my mind is kind of a different approach and loving the result.

I love playing on different focuses between levels and found a perfect picture in my head with nature’s way of its own galaxy with tiny little white stars in its own little universe. The combination of white and green also makes for a very pleasing visual.

Lets end the week in pictures with another interpretation through the in-camera multiple exposure technique and wanted to do something on the concept of natural beauty.

Hope you all had a wonderful week and until the next ciao for now
