A New Angle

For those of us in colder climates like Philadelphia, winters grays still linger. If you haven′t warmed up yet either, consider looking inside for colorful Spring photographs. In my case, I was watering an Amaryllis for months and it happily woke up once the sun started reaching it. In the first photograph, I concentrated on the incredible red hue in the flower and isolated it from its background with a shallow depth of field (ƒ4).
