“There are just two directions in life, the one which is safe but boring, and the other which is delicate but exciting. Now ask yourself, which path will you go?”
― Joe Mari Fadrigalan
Though not a wonderful specimen, there is still beauty here. I’ve actually spend the past week or so photographing flowers that were ‘recycled’ and a bit wilted. Yet, I still see beauty and those blossoms, for the most part have been in great shape.
I have been following several photographers on 500px who seem to use the same the same general style. They tend to be pretty private on the ‘hows’ of their technique. As I follow, I am amazed at the variety of blossoms they capture. Some admit to making their photos at various botanical gardens. I will continue to pursue this as an option.
For autumn, I want to change it up a bit and start capturing the beautifully coloured leaves in this same style. I’ve done a couple of experiments and will be posting them in the next few days. As always, I appreciate your comments and feedback as I learn.
