Macro Monday - Okay Tuesday! - {Tampa Bay Photographer)

I'm a day late with this week's Macro Monday column, but since Macro Tuesday doesn't sound as good, we'll just keep it Macro Monday!

Yesterday was quite cold by Florida standards.  It was a bone chilling 32 degrees outside with frost covering the grass, cars and roofs.   So what do you do when it's that cold and there are gorgeous light reflecting ice crystals everywhere?  Grab your camera - don't change out of your pj's because any delay and the rising sun will quickly melt all that beauty - and go outside and shoot!

My previous shoot was at a theatre and my camera was set at tungsten.  I totally forgot to change my settings in my hurry, but I actually really liked the blue tones on the above image.  Who knew a weed could be so beautiful!

 My husband started the grill to make some breakfast sausages creating gorgeous vapor swirls from the heated lid and the cold air.  The picture above you can see the orange hues from the rising sun.

Another weed, that normally would get pulled, but really looks quite beautiful covered in ice!

Nicole - {Tampa Bay Senior Photographer}

I've enjoyed watching Nicole grow up into a beautiful young lady during these past four years of high school.  She is an accomplished swimmer (That's her in the top of the swimming post her junior year) and a beautiful vocalist!   While I didn't get to do a swim portrait of her (yet!), we did get to spend some time at Philippe Park and at the studio where she spends time rehearsing and recording.
