A bit of my photography

We spent the weekend out at our camp in the Whiteshell and I had my telephoto lens on my camera. I decided to do some tight photos with it and sat down in a thicket under some trees and got some really beautiful shots. I love composing close ups like this with a telephoto lens as it looks like you are up close to your subject but you are not and if you include some of the surroundings they add a soft dreamlike appearance as they are mostly out of focus.

Oh how pretty, what a serene photo of that sweet dragonfly. I love how his wings are sparkling under the sun, that telephoto lens is incredible! :D Thank you for your comment on my blog Roberts, I think yours is amazing! I am a Challenge coordinator for a Design Team and was wondering if you have an actual blog with al lof your paintings? I would love to do an inspiration challenge off of it, where we would make cards inspired off of your work. Let me know, my email is jonjinko@hotmail.com. Happy evening to you!
