It's been a little over a decade since I first explored the combination of macro and flowers as a subject; in many ways, i can say I've "been there and done that", but the simple joy of making a clean, simple macro photograph of a flower seldom fails to please.
One of the most pleasureable elements of working with a 150mm macro lens is how beautifully it issolates subjects from their surroundings.
Sometimes the hardest thing to photograph is one thing in exclusion; in this case, the hosta presented a rich subject to explore, but the challenge of how to frame, and what to include and exclude made it frustrating at the same time. In the end, I went for a balance between "the big picture" and an abstract detail.
