Holy Macro

About a week ago, I went out and purchased a Tamron 60mm f2 Macro lens and let me tell you that I am having fun with this lens. I have been photographing some students at my school for the yearbook, and the portraits I am getting are wonderful. I wanted to experiment the other night with still life photography, so I got the flowers my wife had in a vase and took a night lamp I had laying around, and set it up. I shot some of the flowers in B & W and some in Color. These flowers are yellow, but I used the Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0 Complete to convert it to black and white. Then I added the Sepia tone to the image by using the Sepia Action found in PhotoShop CS3. I love the way the light plays with the petals and how there's just the right amount of shadows weaving in and out and all around the flower. I took more photographs of the different flowers in the vase and will post them on my Facebook page and my Camera-i Photo Studio website within the next couple of days. Today, I bought my wife some sunflowers...can't wait to see what happens.
