Hibiscus Insider

About a month ago I got a hibiscus plant from Home Depot. I took lots of photos of the hibiscus and tried several different creative approaches. One of the most unique things was to insert a weight into the bottom of a large bud that was about to open and let it sink into a glass of Seltzer water.  That causes lots of bubbles to form on the flower and can make for an interesting photo.

In addition,  photos were taken of buds, underneath the blooms, backlit shots, and macros. Here is one of the macros. The original is in the 35mm ratio, which is also nice. But I really like the square format and I'll be posting this tomorrow on Instagram.
