photography and digital scrapbooking

Botanicals in Natural Light


Spent some time practicing macro photography over the weekend. I worked quickly to take advantage of the fleeting late afternoon light. I think they would look good with photo textures added, but for now I’m enjoying them as is. Aperture 2.8, focal length, 100mm, manual focus.

Metal clay jewelry, nature photography, and digital scrapbooking are Karen's passions. She is mostly self-taught, enjoying the learning process as much as producing her works of art. Karen's jewelry features fine silver, copper, and bronze. She sculpts and refines metal clay, then kiln fires her pieces and polishes them to perfection. The process allows for exciting interpretations of symbols, shapes, textures, and combinations of metals. A long time user of Photoshop, Karen loves to create digital layouts with her photos. Her layouts and albums are a diary of sorts; documenting milestones, recording happy times, and celebrating her love of nature.

  1. Beautiful photos Karen especially the flowers!

  2. These are lovely, as usual. The green glass is outstanding against the delicate rose leaves and the blueberries look de-lic-ious!

  3. Thanks, Joyce! The light pink flower is a camellia with a knock-out rosebud on top! Larry was dismayed to see his blueberries being carried outside, but no harm came to them!
