Day 135 of 365
I find myself getting more and more intrigued with the 2 lens reverse macro technique. Got home from work and grabbed my camera with my 50mm 1.8 and 50mm 2.0 (in reverse) and stepped outside into my backyard. Found that even weeds, like this Hawksbeard seed clock, similar to a dandelion but has several stems from one root, can give some wonderful photo opportunities. I think what I really enjoy about this technique is it's a photograph, straight from the camera, but it's got some painterly qualities and almost alien in nature. People spend time in Photoshop trying to get this effect...
I had a hard time choosing which one to post here tonight so check my Flickr over the weekend if you'd like to see more of these.
