I enjoy taking photographs of flowers.
Last weekend I spent the morning photographing a beautiful orchid my dear friend had given me for Christmas. I don’t have a very green thumb, well maybe an aqua colored thumb – but not a green thumb. So I am happy that the orchid still looked as nice as it did on Christmas.
My dear hubby gave me a tripod for Christmas. I set up the tripod and experimented taking photos in different rooms, with different lighting and different backgrounds. Close ups and from a distance. It was early in the morning and I was the only one up and about and I was easily lost in what I was doing.
My only frustrations were that I hadn’t taken the time to think about the light coming in the backdoor and casting shadows on the orchids. I eventually opened the backdoor – but it was cold outside!
I love photo editing. I’m pleased when I have a nice sharp and crisp photo to start with. Often times the results are soft and muted. I ended up editing a lot of the photographs, but I went with the flow and that’s where it led me.
