Flowers and Light II


Untitled

Almost a year ago, I started a series here called Flowers and Light to learn more about how to use light paired with flowers as the subject. It's been fun bringing home different kinds of blooms and experimenting with compositions, colorsblack and whitesinstaxes and backdrops to show different moods.

Now I'm so used to having flowers around that it has become a non-negotiable to be without them. It's so strange to see how different the first set are to the ones I've taken recently and I look forward to what another year of this holds! Sooo can it be peony season already?

  1. Oh yes, I can't wait for peony season! Aren't they the most beautiful flowers? I also can't wait for the spring season when I know you'll be capturing so many lovely florals in this series :) You really are so good at it (I just took a look at your past posts in Flowers and Light!) Winter has been a bit sad without the usual flurry of pretty flowers around (even the neighborhood bodegas are a bit bare) but thank goodness for beautiful photos like this! I can't wait to pick your photographer brain when I see you :) Happy Friday, Tana - Enjoy your weekend! xo
