Macro Photography

Macro Moments – Week 22 – A Rose in December


I couldn’t believe we had a rose blooming on December 10 when it was 30 degrees outside so I had to bring it in and get a photo of it. This is a Lensbaby macro. I am participating in a 100X challenge on Flickr this year and my “X” is “Photos with the Lensbaby”. This lens has a learning curve in that it is manual focus and you move the lens on a pivot to achieve the desired focus and blur. I used a light tent for this photo with an ISO of 400 at 1/160.
