Here’s another photo of Spring in action.  This photograph is  stylistically different from the photos I posted last week in that this photo is less about sharp composition and more about colour.

I used my Lensbaby for this photo, which I’ll blog more about in the future.  I love how the lens creates an unfocussed painterly effect.  As I’ve said previously, I’m usually more interested in capturing the feel of a beautiful flower, rather than documenting in everything in sharp detail.  Don’t get me wrong — I love sharp detail too!  But I tend to lean towards softer focus.

Tip:  If you’re photographing flowers, remember to pay attention to the background.  It can make a really big difference in the composition and quality of your photo.
