Photo Challenge – Remastered

The Friendly Friday Photo Challenge will soon begin again at Something to Ponder About and Sandy L’s The Sandy Chronicles. As such, I am reviewing some of my older photography posts and came across this one.

This pic that was part of Sally’s Phoneography Challenge in years gone by.

Would I change anything?

No – I still like this photo. In particular, the fine hairs on the petals of this Jacaranda flower.

The phoneography challenge was the brainchild of Sally at Lens and Pens and each week has a different theme and tip for improving your phoneography.  I changed the angle of the light for this photo after photographing it on a previous day. It is a Jacaranda flower that flowers here generally in November.

Sally’s Tip for Macro Photography: Here is a quick tip that will benefit you as you explore the world of macrophotography. Be ultra aware of light flow as you take your subject with your device. Turn off your flash to minimize shadows: determine if that allows for a better image. Try to use natural light, which is my favorite setting.



Phoneography Challenge, 2013 – Macro


I love the way you can see all the hairs on this leaf. Quite good quality for a phone.

The iPhoneography Challenge began on 04 February 2013. Please join Gracie, Polly and Sally, as we move forward with this project. Here are our links: http://graciebinoya.com  and http://watchingthephotoreels.com and LensandPensbySally

It is lots of fun and it is amazing the results you can get with your phone.

Here is my contribution for this week:
