Today’s theme combines a specific technique with a specific subject. We have shot both flower and macro as themes this year, but today we will combine the two into a unique challenge. The intricate details in flowers provide interesting subjects for macro shooting. Perhaps a visit to a nursery or the garden section of your local home improvement superstore would be fertile ground for today’s challenge.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
