Today is St Patrick’s Day and while there were celebrations and parades at the weekend in London, Birmingham and Manchester, among other cities, you can celebrate it yourself by photographing all things green.

Look for green items on your commute or search your home or look in the garden for a green subject perfect for a macro shot. We want you to use your imagination to produce a brilliantly clever green image. It could be an abstract of a green car, a close up of a leaf or grass, or a green painted fence.
For future reference, here is a website that has worldwide information about St Patrick’s Day celebrations, www.st-patricks-day.com.
 Photographing green items
Gear needs
Anything goes, from a compact to your DSLR. The important thing about this mini project is that you keep your eyes peeled for subjects fitting the theme.
 
Techniques to try
A polariser will cut-down glare from painted surfaces and shiny foliage if the sun’s out and give a boost to colour saturation. Try a Hoya screw-in or Cokin creative filter system polariser filter.

Getting in close with something such as a Tamron 60mm or 90mm macro lens is a good idea but if you don't  own one, try a Hoya close-up lens or even an extension tube. Kenko has a set of three available at a good price.

If you want to try something different, check out the Lens Baby composer, especially with the pinhole or fisheye attachment.
