Garden Photography

When all else fails, and you can’t get out and about with your camera, there’s always the garden. You can go for macro photography to capture the detail of the flowers, or the bugs, or you can zoom out and try to capture the whole thing. I prefer a middle ground. Using my original nifty fifty from OM-10 days on a new digital body I can get some lovely shallow DoF which allows the flowers to stand out. There’s a softness to the image which suits the subject perfectly.
