Sunflower Showcase - Original Photography by Texas Contemporary Artist Denise Bossarte

Sunflower Showcase - Original Photography by Texas Contemporary Artist Denise Bossarte

I admit it... I LOVE sunflowers. Especially when back-lit by the morning sun.
Here is a sampling I shot this morning at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center.
Yep, Houston has two arboretums and I love going to both of them.

These are taken with my new macro lens and my new camera,
which I am still learning how to use. 
Just found out today you can dynamically set the focus by moving the 
focus rectangle around on the LCD with your finger! How cool is that!!

Continuing my work at Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens 
 finding photos for a portfolio competition with my theme of
photographing flowers from the back rather than the front.

Even though it was an overcast day, this magenta beauty just glowed with front lighting.
I loved the contrast between the sharp lines in the petals and the soft contours of the stem.

 finding photos for a portfolio competition with my theme of
photographing flowers from the back rather than the front.

The bright, cheerful colors caught my eye and the sun cooperated 
to make the veins on the petals really stand out!

I got a new camera this week so I took advantage of the slightly overcast weather to try it out. The roses are blooming in Hermann Park and were a perfect challenge for the new lens.
Really like the camera and the flexibility I have with the focus, even on basic camera settings.
Thanks to my husband for helping me purchase the new camera and lenses!!

Continuing my work at Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens 
 finding photos for a portfolio competition with my theme of
photographing flowers from the back rather than the front.
Just loved the play of light on the petals and the shadows the 
overlapping petals made. Also a bit of spider web at the edges!
