Feelin' Groovy

“ Feelin' Groovy ” Curves ~ is my project for this week. I chose to show a macro image of a maple seed pod w/ some grape hyacinth flowers in the background to add some contrast of colors. We have a zillion of these pods every Spring because we have 7 maple trees. The pods are fresh and green right now and the Spring winds blow some of them off the trees. Later as they dry, they really fall to the point when you open the door they helicopter their way inside your house and car doors. I took a series of shots indoors w/ 2 daylight clamp style fixtures at 100 watt equivalent making a background and one side w/ white foam board. I also have ambient lights in the room with daylight bulbs. Settings were F3.5 1/20 iso 200 @ 100mm
