Before I start this post, I just wanted to say thank you all SO much for your lovely birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day filled with love from friends and family, fun gifts, delicious food, a lovely walk in the woods, and a movie night. 🙂 I can’t believe I’m 19. O.o And yes, I will hopefully post about my birthday gifts next, because I know you guys enjoy those posts (as do I). 😉 So stay tuned!
But for now, I am SO excited to show you guys this photoshoot! I looked out the window one morning and saw that the wheatfield across the lane looked silver. It had just rained and the sun caught the bedewed wheat in a breathtaking way. I dropped everything and took heaps of pictures of all the little wonders I found at the edge of the field -including a large amount of ladybugs and water drops, which made for some amazing photos!
Have fun browsing through these minty-hued pictures!
Here’s the beautiful setting. ❤ ❤
Wheat is just pleasing to look at, isn’t it?
Of course, it wouldn’t be an official photoshoot without Maggie. 😛
I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of taking pictures of water drops. They can turn a simple green blade into a field of diamonds. ❤
I don’t usually like flies, but they can make for an interesting macro picture. 😉
Fun fact: Dad planted the wheat in this field as a “nurse crop” to protect the orchard grass in here while it gets established, after which he’ll make into hay. 🙂
Yay, a ladybug! The bright red against cool mint just looks so pretty and cheerful to me, even though I don’t normally like red and mint green together.
I have to admit, I’m really proud of this photo. 😀 It took a lot of patience while getting soaked to finally get a sharp macro picture of this ladybug! It’s now my desktop background. 😉
This photo’s a little strange, but I like the abstract texture of it with the varying sizes of bokeh and the soft green stripes.
Who knew backlit, unripe wheat could look so pretty? 😛
It was amazing how covered everything was in tiny droplets!
Ladybugs again! This mini, spiky forest looks hard to walk through to me, but the ladybug persevered. 😉
AHHH, I love this one too! The soft, creamy background just sets off the sharp focus on the bedewed red shell.
I honestly only added this picture because I loved the bokeh in the left corner. Isn’t it so neat? It’s like a cutout of the orchard grass head, and I don’t even know how it happened!
This stem was so silvered with water that it looked coated in sugar crystals. ❤
Nothing like a good drop-hanging-from-a-grass-blade photo. 😛
One more pop of red…
And we’ll end with this perfect waterdrop. *heart eyes*
Ahhh, this photoshoot just makes me happy! I do hope you enjoyed it too, my friends. 🙂 Before you go, I’d love to hear…
Which photos were your favorites? Do you like ladybugs? Do you prefer macro photography or normal photography?
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
P. S. Sometimes you guys will ask me what lens or camera I used, so I’m going to start putting that information in each post, probably in the postscript like I’m doing now. 😉 So for this post I used my Nikon D3400 with my 50mm lens, and for the super close-ups I attached my Fotodiox macro lens extension tube set – just the 7mm ring. Hope that helps!
