A Macro Early Spring At Wakehurst Place

Macro Nature Photography at Wakehurst Place in the UK.

It is the end of January 2018 and the temperature this weekend shot up to 12c.  The crocuses and snowdrops took this warmth and the rain that fell in the preceding week as a hint, it is time to pop up.  The Wakehurst Place gardens in Sussex are coming to life, colours are popping out everywhere and life is renewing for 2018.

All these photos were shot on a Canon EOS 650d with a 50mm prime lens (Fixed at 50mm) and of course, on a tripod.  The camera was set to aperture priority and ISO at 100.

The backgrounds to the photos were chosen carefully to enhance the main focus and the lighting was provided by a nice daytime overcast sky.

The composition of these photos follows the ‘Rule of Thirds‘ throughout.

The photos were then processed using a crossed processed preset in Adobe Lightroom.

I hope you enjoy these photos of these gorgeous photos with the amazing colours of spring.
