Fun with Mylars!

I learned this trick from my friend Gale Perry, a very talented photographer and photo tour operator.

You buy a roll of silver colored mylar (you can find them on Amazon or in art supply stores) a make a cone which you attach to your lens with tape.  It is a bit tricky to get it on without crumbling the paper, so be patient!  The cone should look something like this:

Make sure you have plenty of light and that the cone is straight and watch the magic unfold!

Divine Dahlias

I find Dahlias endlessly fascinating!  So many different shapes and colors and so much grace.  The pictures were taken at the San Francisco Botanical Garden during their peak season of August-September.  These were shot handheld, but there is plenty of room for tripods.
