This past weekend I spent some time photographing butterflies.
I’ve learned from past experience that they seem to keep their eye on me and prefer to keep their distance. Therefore, I tend just sit and wait for these little fellows to come to me rather than attempting to chase them around.
I usually pick a place and pre-focus on several areas to get an perspective. Then wait for one to flutter by. I’d be interested in hearing any tips that you might have learned from your experiences.
Sometimes they choose to leave in the middle of your shot, which can creates an unusual and somewhat cool image.
This one was created using SnapArt3 to give it a painterly appearance.
My son graduated from college earlier this year. So with him now officially on his own, we have reclaimed his old room. It is now a spare bedroom / sewing room. We took up the carpet and refinished the hardwood floors, painted and purchased some different furniture.
This week we finished hanging a photograph that I had taken last month at Aldridge’s Gardens of a butterfly. We had it printed on three 12X24 canvas prints. We were extremely pleased with the results. I have often seen examples of this type of work, but have never attempted it myself.
