Good morning everyone,
Thank you for visiting my photo blog as I continue to work on my 365 photography project. It is day 20 of my photography challenge and I decided to snap a few photos of the flowers growing in my garden for today's project. It is a rainy day here in SouthWestern Ontario as a result I also had to be somewhat quick in taking these photos. The first image is of small delicate flowers that recently appeared in the garden. I don't recognize them and would love know their name, so if you could help me out that would be greatly appreciated. Just send me a quick comment with the flowers name using the form below. Thank you!! Theses sweet little flowers were photographed using my macro lens. The image was then processed using Photoshop CC to further blur the background. The second and third images are of my daffodils who just recently bloomed. For the second image I chose to process it as a black and white floral print using ON1 Photo Raw 2018. The third image was pretty much straight out of camera and only received minor editing in Lightroom and Photoshop CC.
Floral photography is a great way to be creative with your photography as you get to try different angles, lenses and varying apertures. Furthermore, for those who don't mind the post production work there is endless options on how you can process your images. If you don't currently own any photo processing software I would encourage to download the free trial of ON1 Photo Raw 2018. It is a very easy to use and they are constantly adding new features to the software. Other options include the creative cloud package offered by Adobe. One benefit to the ON1 software is that you get to buy the program outright and you're not stuck paying a monthly subscription fee.
Tomorrow I am planning to make my way to the botanical gardens in Niagara Fall, Ontario and as a result will be posting my images later in the day. Have fun and continue shooting!
