Usually I don't go out photograph flowers but this time I took out my macro and photograph flowers all day. With macro photography and especially outdoor flowers, it is all about the light. The day that I took this photo was overcast so I have a big soft box ahead of me.

When it comes to macro photography is all about the background. There's something magical about seeing something so small in a large print or in my case on a large monitor that surprise and so addictive. I wish I could have the patients to do it more often. Maybe I need to invest in a macro lens for myself. I was using my sister camera to took this photo. Shot this with a Canon 7D the classic one. Canon just release a new  Mark II but for macro photography any camera with a macro lens can do the job as as fine. The trick is to bring your tripod with you.

There so much resource online  of where you can learn macro photography. It is an escape from the real world and mesmerised in the beauty of the small things. Check out Tim Cooper on the B&H Event Space where Tim introduced macro photography to the novice or season photographer.

I put up this flower and didn't no my research on it and someone on the internet did the research for me. So if you really want to know the botanical name of this flower then it called Thysanotus tuberosus or Common Fringe Lily.
