I've always been inspired by nature because of its beauty, imperfections and mysteries. I love photographing and drawing elements of nature and feel even more at peace when I am able to create art while being part of nature. Whether I'm photographing at a beach or sketching on the dirt in my backyard, nature inspires my creative process. Maybe it's also because I feel even more of God's presence when surrounded by the beauty of what He created. During a fun playdate at the park, I was inspired to capture some macro images on my phone by using an inexpensive 2 in 1 wide angle and macro lens attachment that is awesome. I have no regrets in buying! I definitely recommend purchasing one to play with. May you see nature and life in fine detail.
"Budding Dandelion" has to be my favorite among these macro images. I love the details, light and softness in this image. The moment I saw this image on my phone, I knew it would be a black and white image.
"Curling" was a unique approach to capturing a leaf. The leaves had beautiful vibrant fall colors but I also noticed could use some water (most likely due to the drought we are experiencing). I took this image because the colors attracted me and I love the details on the curl of the leaf.
Who doesn't like the color green when it comes to nature? In "A Touch of Green" image, I appreciate the details of the dirt on the leaf. It represents 'imperfection' in nature, I suppose, which makes the image that more interesting.
In case you are wondering, my name is pronounced sa-rome and welcome to my visual thread of art, digital photography and design. I'm excited that you've dropped by! My days consist of the lovely chaos of caring for two little ones (if you have any running around at home, visit my learning corner for free art activities) and my free time is dedicated to creating.
