Dancing in the Wind

Dancing in the Wind fine art anemone blanda collection by Rosie Nixon
White, blue and pink Anemone blanda are usually one of the first flowers each year that I start to photograph in the studio.  

They start to flower just after the snowdrops, crocus and winter aconites have started to bloom.  

I find that they are ever so photogenic ... especially Anemone blanda var. rosea 'Pink Shades'. 

I use a lensbaby composer pro with a macro filter or else I use my macro lens with very shallow depths of field.

Usually with the lensbaby I'll shoot at f2.8 but with the macro lens I'll shoot around f3.2 or f3.5.

I've named this series 'Dancing in the Wind' as these flowers are commonly known as Winter Windflowers. 

They've all been uploaded to my shop over on Crated and are available as art prints, framed with or without a matte or on canvas wrap.
