Bee Busy

Many of us are like industrious hard-working bees. We work hard to achieve goals. My mom is very energetic. Even in her 70s—she can’t be still for very long. She’s always got to keep busy. Are you a busy bee? “Bee Busy” is from my photo vintage series. This series focuses on creating photos with a soft muted palette that gives the photograph a vintage feel.
“Busy Bee” is from my Photo Vignette series, featuring soft, muted colors that give the photograph a timeless feel.

Process:
“Bee Busy” was taken with a Canon 30D camera and a lensbaby lens—a selective focus lens. The photograph is edited in Adobe Photoshop to make it look like a vintage photograph. (The bee posed for the publicity!) The original photograph was taken on our farm in Georgia.

Where to Put in Your Home:
Anywhere you want to bring the outdoors inside.

Best Printing Method:
I think this photograph looks best printed on metallic paper. At larger sizes you can see the details on the bee. “Busy Bee” is a square print and is only available in size like: 6 x 6, 8 x 8, etc.
