Both great….but I really love the contrast in the black and white one. Terrific!!
Thanks, Howard. That contrast didn’t happen by accident. I used the darkroom techniques of dodging and burning. They’re still two of the best tools in the box.
Very unusual, and dramatic takes on tulips. The first makes me feel like I’m a very small being, privy to the intimate goings on in the garden. The second has an appealing formality.
Thanks, Linn. I’ve been attempting to shoot flower “portraits” (for lack of a better word) using just controlled window light and a small flashlight. The camera seems to handle mixed lighting very well but even so, it’s relatively easy to make adjustments. Hope you’re not bored. I have more!
Superb angles! Gorgeous color! Great black and white! What a post.
Thanks, Linda. I used to think that you would always get beautiful results if you had a beautiful subject. Not so. I have lots of proof.
They’re both gorgeous, Ken, but I really love the richness of the palette, the water droplets, and the composition of the first one.
Thanks, Ash. I have a few more tulips in the holding area. Stay tuned.
Oh, this is me drooling on my keyboard. Colours and composition in your first photo are gorgeous.
Thanks, Sally. I’m glad you like this.
