One summer morning I braved the heat and humidity to take a few photos. I noticed dewdrops on my neighbor’s daisies – these lovelies were calling my name. 

The moment I stepped out the door both my glasses and camera lens fogged up (yay humidity + nearly 90°F) but I was prepared with my handy microfiber cloth. Until my camera adjusted my creative process went something like this: wipe camera lens – focus – wipe lens – focus again – take a picture – foggy – repeat.

I did manage to get one with, we’ll call it “Nature’s Filter”, as the fog on my lens actually made a cool effect.

Once the fog on my lens cleared I was able to get a few nice macro shots. It felt good to stretch my creative legs…something I haven’t done in a while since I’m a delicate flower in the hot/humid weather.

All of the photos above were captured with my tripod mounted Canon 7D and 60mm Macro lens. Processing was done exclusively in Lightroom.
