I became interested in capturing roses recently, and found this beautiful pink Amazing Grace rose that spoke to me.

Up Close, a rose can look quite different at the right angles as you can the many pedals and shapes.

Behind a rose can look just as unique as the front. From stem to pedals, it gives a new view on this popular flower.

I had recently discovered a vast set of texts in the local craft store, and I instantly thought of valentines day ideas.

Hot spicy love

Peppers are the spice of life, they can be attributed to heat, color, taste, and shape. These red peppers fit perfectly in my heart shape and presents a fairly spice valentines day look.

Yellow peppers are some of the most common in the world, but as you see in the grocery store, each pepper can be quite different in size and shape.

What makes peppers so great for photographing is the almost waxy exterior that makes them really shine and pop out in the right light. I really enjoy comparison photos as well because you can see these peppers also change color gradually. Amazing!

With a stem longer than the body, this orange pepper caught my eye in the market, just begging to be captured. While there isn’t smooth edges like the previous two peppers, this one has a beautiful hint of reds and orange that make it shine.

Crazy about kale

I’ve taken a liking to food photography recently, since it’s very important in our lives, why not document the things that provide us sustenance?

Title: Kale leaf

Looking closer at Kale, we find it has a rather veiny appearance just like humans. However these veins are purely green and rather delicious!

I was in a ranch market when this purple Kale caught my eye instantly, a very unique vegetable that I hadn’t really seen before and since purple is my favorite color, I knew it was calling me.

This upclose picture of the purple Kale shows that much like green Kale, it has a very complex vein system however the leaves are much longer and wider than normal.

Pink is another popular color for roses, often giving off a lighter vibe while still catching the eye.
