I like all the roundness here, and the colors and patterns. I actually made the ceramic bowl many years ago. The apples are Gravensteins; when I was a girl we had some apple trees of this type. So this simple photo of a bowl of apples has some meaning to me; some connection to my past. And I feel quite satisfied creating this photograph. Canon 70d, 40mm stm lens.

Online Photography Class

I have taken an online class in nature photography over the last month with Kathleen Clemons at I learned a new processing technique and have been using my Canon 40mm 2.8 stm lens in the reverse macro position quite a lot, as this allows me to focus very close to a small subject. Changing my point of view this way helps me see differently and create images not just snap photos. There is a lot of trial and error involved, but I do enjoy the process!
