I think dreamy macros of flowers, weeds, or leaves are my favorite photos to take. There is something so relaxing about seeing objects so closeup, so different from the way you would ordinarily see them- and then moving the camera or changing the aperture or area of focus just a slight bit to get an entirely different view. It’s like a mindfulness meditation. And then there’s the editing- so much fun! I used different Lightroom presets as starting points in editing the dandelion macros below- I’m not sure which I like best.

Oh wow! I adore macro images…these are so stunning!

Beautiful shots. Very ethereal. I love the first one, especially. It reminds me of looking down on lots of little umbrellas.
Gorgeous each one. You are my kind of girl.
