This month’s Picture This Contest at Gardening Gone Wild is a fun theme: Macro In A Mason Jar. I first read of the technique on David Perry’s blog, and David is the creator and judge of this month’s contest. It’s a fun technique for taking macro shots and you can read about the method at GGW or on David’s blog, even if you don’t intend to enter a photo.
I took a few shots using some beads, pennies, and polished stones, but the buttons appealed to me most — perhaps it’s the bright colour on a dark, grey day.
My entry for the contest, below. I can’t wait to try this with some summer blooms!
