Photo365 – Day 339 – The Savoy

While at Donna Nook I spotted this interesting textured cabbage…the Savoy (Capitata var. sabauda L.). In the supermarket they’re normally less interesting, but a farmer sells fresh produce at the car park field of Donna Nook. You also find sprouts on the stem etc.

I thought it would make in interesting photo so bought one for just 50p

I placed it on a plastic table and backlit it with my home made ring light. The centre of the cabbage was dark so I lit that with the Joby Gorilla Torch. Exposure was 8 seconds at f/22 with ISO400 (I forgot to set that back to ISO100!) on the Olympus Pen E-P2 with 14-42mm lens.

Photo365 – Day 269 – flat

I’m still playing with the toy lens + 10 macro adaptor on the Olympus EP2. This is straight out of the cameras – a setting on a hosepipe multi spray nozzle. I set the white balance to cloudy to get the warm tone.

Photo365 – Day 188 – green

Part four of my rainbow theme within the photo365 project is Green. You can’t fail with nature. Here’s the bud of a flower still looking green against a background of leaves. It’s taken with the Pentax K5 and 100mm macro lens.

Photo365 – Day 177 – Clover

I spent a lazy day today sunbathing and it must have not only frazzled my skin but also my brain, because i couldn’t remember whether I’d used a photo of clover in my photo365. I’d certainly spent one session photographing it…but I went for a grass blade instead. So here is today’s photo taken on the lawn from a low viewpoint of a clover flower. Shallow depth of field and back-lighting have helped emphasise the tiny flower. It’s taken with the Pentax K-5 and 100mm macro.

When I was looking through the past photo365 pictures I spotted that I’ve uploaded two photos of McFlurry ice cream. My memory is fading! I’d hoped to photograph something different every day.

Photo365 – Day 173 – poppy bulb

Continuing my theme of poppy photos while I have them in the garden, this is of the bulb before it explodes into a large and colourful poppy. I included the other stalks in to balance the right side.
It’s part of my photo365 project.
