Yesterday while walking into our studio I noticed that some spring buds were just beginning to sprout on the trees outside our building. This morning the tiny buds had come alive, and some had already blossomed. I always photograph the first spring buds I see so I went to the studio and grabbed a Nikon D3s with a 105mm macro lens on it. Here are two of the many shots I did.
I wanted the delicate colors of the plants to dominate the shots so I positioned myself to have out-of-focus neutral gray tones created in the background by the wide open aperture of the lens.
