Two images that speak to each other. A similar thread so that they contribute to the context of the other?
Totally unrelated to my lavender macro, I have been watching Sue and Felix on Creative Live today.
I have resisted using flash as much as possible until now because I don’t like how it looks. Seeing natural light recreated with artificial studio light has EXCITED ME! I can’t wait to get some time to try it out.
As a Mum with 3 young boys I only have free time really at night and to be able to shoot then would be a blessing. I am looking forward to exploring it further. Creative Live has opened up a world of education opportunity for me. I have no possibility of getting out, but I can have it going while I watch the boys play or play with my baby. I said to my family earlier tonight that I didn’t like technology, but really it not only is the foundation of my passion for photography, it allows me, a suburban Mum in Adelaide, Australia to take part in a world class education that I could not otherwise access or afford.
I am sure there are a million ways to photograph a dandelion. Here are some of the others I took.
I have been looking at framing the subject using whatever is available. I have picked flowers and held them in front of the camera.
Stood behind objects to highlight something.
And looked for backgrounds to envelope the subject.
I love it. I love the effect and interest it can create. I enjoy the challenge of finding a new, more interesting way of photographing something. Isn’t photography great?!
