Get close to your subject. Use the zoom function in your camera, or physically move closer to it. Often, our goal is to capture as much of a scene as we can. This time, zoom in on your subject or a particular detail to tell a more interesting story.
Today I bought a couple of tickets from the Maison de la Culture in Papeete for the 2018 FIFO International Film Festival. Walking back through the Paofai Park to the marina, I came across one of nature’s little treasures.
We have had wet but warm weather for a number of days now. The combination has given rise to the growth of fungi.
I thought this fungi was rather delightful and deserved to be captured in a photograph. Kneeling down in the moist grass, I zoomed in to take this shot.
I also took an above shot, of another fungi. It was difficult to recognise it as such but I thought it a rather fun photo.
Another treasure was this Golden Trumpet Allamanda Cathartica.
I was trying to capture the rain drops.
I need to practice close up shots because I didn’t think I captured the vibrance of this image.
