Notes to self:
I meant to get a pretty aqua/turquoise background to use against the magenta flowers. (forgot)
Experiment more with depth of field. These are pretty straight on and more bluriness would be pretty.
Shoot thru the flowers, creating a blur in the foreground and focus on a flower in the background.
I thought the black and white would be way cooler. I'm not wow'd. Maybe different processing?
Experiment with backlight. These are front and side lit.
My shots always seem colorful, clean, straightforward and dare I say a bit boring?? I want to try thinking outside the box... haze, blur, something new! Something more creative, not a shot that looks like a stock photo.
Also, I didn't use a black background. I just placed the flowers in the sun and exposed accordingly, causing the background to go dark. (I was actually in a light bedroom with white bedding).
Maybe those thoughts will be helpful to you too! :-) Enjoy the rest of your week! xo
