This month I am excited to be sharing the beautiful photography of Charlotte Hedman, who is an artist I follow on Flickr. Charlotte’s work includes portraits and landscapes but it is her amazing macro images which I adore most. These intricate structures of nature are presented in a simple and unpretentious way which brings calm and pleasure to the eye.
Charlotte skilfully focuses on textures, colour, patterns and form, which are underlined by reflection, water, and dream like bokeh lighting.
Her images present both subtle colours and bold contrasts. The soft colour tones create a sense of peace and appreciation of nature, while the bold contrast perfectly emphasises the simple form and textures. The stunning images Charlotte has kindly chosen to share illustrate this.
Relax sit back and enjoy
Wind Me Up – Charlotte Hedman
“There is something just so beautiful about the very tiny things we don’t see as we walk by them. I loved this tiny curling vine, that seemed to be decorating the leaf next to it ” Charlotte Hedman
About Charlotte in her own words
Photography to me is an all consuming passion that I couldn’t live without. It has helped me see beauty everywhere I look, in all the places I used to ignore. It brings me into the moment and fills me with peace, as though meditating. I love macros, and seeing the tiny wonders around us, but also enjoy shooting landscapes and portraits. Having been an artist my whole life, photography is now my creative outlet, along with the post editing work as part of the artistic process. I always hope that people viewing my images see in them what I saw and felt while shooting in that precious moment.
Living In A Bubble – Charlotte Hedman
I love walking in a near by forest with my camera and listening to the water rippling in the creek. There is usually something in the creek worth photographing…this time it was the bubbles . And it created a funny kind of selfie at the same time. ” Charlotte Hedman

” I love to photograph flowers in water, whether they are growing there or have fallen in puddles. ” Charlotte Hedman
Doing The Twist – Charlotte Hedman
” I saw this flower at a friend’s house in London, but didn’t realise till I uploaded the image , that there was a curvy stem that seemed to blend right into the tip of another leaf with a water droplet on it. ”

I took these photographs after searching in the garden shed, and discovered some normally hidden gems exposed by the sunshine. Light is such a natural jewel creating, many different effects . I hope you like these and are inspired to check your shed for hidden treasures.
When I started this blog I was obsessed with taking close up photos of things that are often overlooked. This led to me becoming drawn to abstract patterns caused by light, and this in turn started me down the track of playing around with black and white images.
