Flora and Fauna Friday: Foxgloves

Foxgloves photographed with a long telephoto lens to isolate them from the background. A technique that I used quite often in the 1990s.

I went for a couple walks around the neighborhood with Dave the Rubber Ducktographer recently.

At one point he was perched up a tree. There was a distracting blue tarpaulin in the background so my plan was to do a selective colour treatment. That allowed me to lose the blue tarpaulin.

This week Ann-Christine gives us the prompt Soft for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

My first thought was of some of the photos I had taken last year when I was experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. Mostly fast portrait lenses but also some CCTV lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.
