Fall Daisies

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 4 November 2010 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Well, there's not much fall color in Texas, so how about some fall daisies?

I enjoyed the many messages saying you've missed my work. Thank you for thinking of me. I've been fine - although a bit stressed with remnants of the move. Plus, there's just NOT much (nature-wise) to photograph where I live, so I have to rely on my macro studio. My office isn't totally organized yet, plus I've got the latest Photoshop upgrade to install, but I hope keep a more regular posting schedule. Bless you all, my Am3 friends!

They look so crisp and generally happy to <be in the picture>! Each of them is a little wonder, the structure of the flower worth a closer study.

So glad to have you back!
Great image! Love the graceful lines of the stems. Very nicely arranged. Beautiful detail and color. The texture makes the flowers pop. Great work, as always.

I was beginning to wonder when you would rev up the macro studio and add some new work. Very nicely done.

Its always nice to see your images, Barbara. I like the different layers of textures in these flowers and how each of them are turned slightly away.

Welcome back! I have missed you! These daisies are wonderful and warm - a welcome sight on this cold November morning in Oakland. I wish you would post a photo of your studio to show us how you set these photos up. You and Anita are both doing such a wonderful job of doing this. Are you following Anita? Awhile back I saw a video of her studio - I think it may be on YouTube. In any case, work like yours may eventually be in my future. I am takingl Mike Moats' macro class in San Diego in Feb. Check him out at TinyLandscapes.com. But I bet you already know about him. Can you remind me of the name of that workshop leader you went to the Palouse with? I emailed him at the time you gave me his name and I think he put me on a wait list. I'd like to check back with him to see my status. Again, it is nice to see your work again!

@Barbara Lee: Thanks! I'm slow but getting back into the routine. I'll make an attempt to do a blog post on my macro studio after the holidays, and will let you know. Anita and I love doing macro and photographed together last spring in PA while I was traveling to the east coast. I know Mike Moats from BPN - and he would be an excellent resource to learn more about macro. John Barclay is the leader I went to the Palouse with. I hope you get to go! His partner is Dan Sniffin, and he lives in Fresno. You might hook up with Dan sometime and do some stuff around Yosemite. http://www.dansniffinphoto.com/-/dansniffinphoto/default.asp Tell him I sent you and said 'hi!'

Barbara, what is BPN? Thanks for all of this information!
