Poppies and White Flower Bokeh - Beth Young

California

Last year, when the pandemic hit like a freight train, I turned to more macro and local intimate scenes like many other photographers. My husband thoughtfully bought me a proper macro lens that was on my wishlist for years, and this spring, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying putting into practice what I’ve learned during shelter in place from online classes by Kathleen Clemons and Sara Marino – two masters of macro botanical photography in my opinion! Even though the world is slowly opening back up again, my perspective will always be in tune with the tiny macro world at my feet, a silver lining of this past year. https://www.optimalfocusphotography.com
