What? John doing Flowers?
I am on a roll today, and with two posts published, this one makes a ‘hat trick’! I could also say ‘And now for something completely different’ for those Monty Python buffs out there, because this post is based on a few flower photographs! No, they are not my usual ‘thing’ but every now and then I have a go at something else – and these are some of the results! I hope you like them!
This first shot was taken while wandering through the centre of Berne. We had been to photograph their famous clock and were wandering down one of their lovely streets and just happened to spot this flower head and leaf popping out of the shade. I didn’t know how it would come out, and was really pleased when I saw the outcome.
This next photograph was taken in our conservatory. Penny, my other half, likes to have flowers around the house, and the light was just right for a couple of shots. I like this one the best.
The last three images were experiments with a daylight lamp, the camera on a tripod and a black background. A totally amateur set-up! The first shot was a straightforward flower head, and in the latter two, I tried shooting the type of image that you might find in a book advertisement.
All credit goes to James Herbert, who is one of my favourite authors. The book cover design is superb and the book itself is brilliant and worth a good read!
So, there we go! A little sojourn into another genre of photography! I hope you liked my photographs, thank you for visiting and please come and see me again!
