It might not seem like spring in some places, but San Francisco is having April showers and May flowers already. (The joys of living in Northern California become even more obvious once you plant a garden, even a tiny container one like the one on our balcony.)
Here are some spring flowers, and also a couple great portraits from a recent shoot for web-design client Dr Megan Parker and her wife.
Obviously, I’ve been having waaaay too much fun with the AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 Lens. Doesn’t the bokeh in the last one look piles of copper coins? (A small — very small! — fortune.)
The images below were shot with the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4 Classic Portrait Lens, and then I had some fun with them in Photoshop…
Here’s a shot of a poppy I grew myself, in my wee balcony garden. There was a great week back in October where I did a few days shooting some food I baked, and every thing in the garden was thriving, so I was out shooting at different times of day … and I suddenly realized, “I made or grew everything I shot this week!” It was a really incredible feeling.
Speaking of making things, we’ve just built a store over on Zazzle with cards and stationary and all sorts of things that use the images we get so much joy creating. Won’t you please stop by and see if you’d like to treat yourself or a friend to something decorative and/or functional?
Anything you see on our site and would like made into cards, coasters, aprons, or posters — drop us a note and let us know! We’ll make it for you right away — and be delighted to share our art with you!
