Flowers are one of my favourite subject for Macro photography. A few weeks back we visited the flower dome and cloud forest at Gardens at the Bay.
A bloom captured by R on my DSLR
There were many unusual flowers which I have not seen before at the Flower Dome. It was really fun capturing all of them on camera.
A pink bloom
There was a variety of single and cluster blooms. I personally find it easier to focus on a single flower then a cluster as it was more difficult to judge which angle will give a better shot with a cluster.
A cluster of fruits hanging from a tree
However this bunch of fruit really caught my attention. Don’t you find it really unique? The covering had split open exposing the fruit but at the same time remained fastened to the stem. Interesting isn’t it.

Tiger girl the model of the day
During the week we visited the Garden at the Bay as we had visitors in town. It was Tiger girl’s 2nd visit to the place and she enjoyed herself more there this time now that she is a bit older.
I took the chance to put what I recently learned from the books ~ Your Child in Pictures and Design Aglow Posing for Family Portraits Photography to practice and took quite a few snapshots of Tiger girl.
Macro Shot of Tiger girl
The lighting was a bit harsh as we were there near to midday. This wasn’t a deterrent for me as it only means that I needed to adjust the manual controls of the DSLR so that the pictures taken won’t be washed out or over exposed.
A more laid back Tiger girl
I took a series of shots of Tiger girl and tried out different ways of processing the shots. Different effects were created and I am love how the shots turned out.

Duck on the grass
While we were at Tokyo Disneyland I saw many ducks on their compound waddling around. The kids were fascinated as it was the first them that they were seeing so many ducks around.
Close up of a duck
We saw a group of ducks swimming around in a pond and I managed to get some close up shots of them moving around in the pond.
Moving in the water
This creature really moves around very gracefully swimming on the surface of the water. I love how the water ripples around it as it moves.
