Anemone in a Mason Jar

David Perry is one of my favorite photographers. His forceful, yet gentle images have an uncanny way of showing the very soul of whatever he is shooting - from an oyster, to a bouquet of roses to a B-1 Bomber.
David also has a very groovy website where he shares musings and photos that are always worth checking out for both education and inspiration.
David has been experimenting with using glass jars as a way of getting interesting macro pictures from point and shoot cameras. I thought I would experiment with his technique and this is one of the pictures I came up with. It's the last anemone in my container gardens, shot using a large mason jar.
This month, on the fantastic website, Gardening Gone Wild, David Perry explains mason jar photography. He is also judging a photo contest using this technique. Check out Macro in a Mason Jar.
