Garden Muse: Botanical Portfolio exhibit coming soon!

27 08 2016

It’s that time again! I’ll be installing my second photography exhibit at the Horticulture Center at Green Spring Gardens this Monday. The exhibit runs from August 30 through October 23. Meet the artist (that’s me!) on Sunday, October 9, 1-3 p.m. There will lots to eat and drink and lots of inventory to purchase (please do!). Hope you can make the reception or at least the show.

Also, Green Spring Gardens has their annual Fall Fest on Saturday, September 10, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. I’ll have a booth there with lots of great inventory and you can stop in and see the exhibit that day, too! Thanks to everyone for your support!

One more Slaty Skimmer dragonfly…

12 07 2016

One more Slaty Skimmer dragonfly shot…I usually like to diffuse the light when I can with my tri-grip diffuser (for more saturated color and even lighting on my subject), but sometimes the sunlight works in my favor. In this case, the sunlight illuminated my subject and my background…and the shallow depth of field renders the Sacred lotus leaves as glowing abstract shapes.

Six-spotted Fishing Spider

26 07 2015

Six-spotted Fishing Spider (Dolomedes triton); it’s so hard to get perfect depth-of-field with these tiny subjects, but I’m happy with the overall look of this shot regardless (thanks to my friend Michael Powell for the identification). Re: size—this one was probably about an inch or so long (they can get up to 2.5 inches!). The lily pad was a smaller one.
