Magnolia seeds: The excitment of Learning

As I was walking with the Hubby I notice tons of Magnolia seed Pods.  I knew this would be fun photographing close-up so I connected my 100 mm Macro lens on my camera, set up the tripod, and shot away.

Have fun processing your images…play with the color or remove the color.  Add or remove texture for a different feel to the subject.  The excitement of learning  can always help you with your photography.   It’s always fun to create new art and this Magnolia seed did it for me.  This was my first time processes infrared using Nik Software.



As you stroll around be aware of your surroundings…you never know what potential subjects may lay close to your feet.  To purchase a print or license image click here.

    Hi Frank…sorry for the delayed reply. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It seems like more and more people comment less. I really enjoy your input on my work and enjoy reading your comments. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween..yikes, Thanksgiving is already next week! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    What an awesome shot. I generally prefer warm tones, but I love your cool interpretation here. Definitely makes me think of winter, too. And cold! I don’t know much about mustard seeds, except that they are small, so I really have no idea what all I’m looking at in the frame, but i do know that i like it. Kudos for a lovely shot.
