Salsify Seeds II

Salsify Seeds II

What do you do when you don’t have a macro lens and you want to get on the Dandelion Bandwagon (1, 2, 3)?  Get a bigger dandelion!   Again, we have Salsify seeds setup in my ‘studio’.  In the afternoon, the sun comes through a window in my house and has served as my back-lighting system for awhile.  I think it worked well here.  The one thing I don’t have and need is a black backdrop to make something like this stand out even better.

The details in the fibers are wonderful.  Click through to see them in good detail.

  3. WOW!!! Love everything about this!
    Btw. I have black (and a few other colors) posterboard that I use as a backdrop. I bought the big sheets, and you can even get them with a different color on each side. They’re inexpensive, and most importantly, easy to tuck away somewhere when not in use.

    • Posterboard sounds like a great solution to keep around! I even have a place to store it next to my window. 🙂 Thank you, Michaela!

  4. LOL… That reminds me of the solution to not having a pair of binoculars… “Just stand closer to the thing you want to look at”… 😉
    Real nice shot Sean, and that’s a pretty cool natural studio you have there… and thanks for the plug… 🙂
