I'm a huge fan of macro photography, shallow depth of field and isolated focus. My 100mm 2.8L IS USM gives me just the right mix of all three.
Spent a good portion of the day at the LA Arboretum hanging out in the tropical greenhouse. I challenged myself to capture the plant life in ways we aren't used to seeing it - so I opted for low and/or high vantage points, taking into consideration (and trying to make good use of) the negative space. Paying close attention to lines and texture... The scrim over the greenhouse acted as a great diffuser and evenly bathed the flowers in beautiful sunlight.
Color inspires me to create!
