It’s an odd way to do close-up photography, but it works for me.
I’ll be hiking through a field on a spring or summer morning, looking for birds to photograph, when a flower, or maybe a group of flowers, catches my attention. Sometimes it’s because of how the color of the flower contrasts with its surroundings. Sometimes it’s because of the way the morning sun highlights the flower. And sometimes it’s because the flower is isolated from its surroundings in a way that makes it stand out.
