Seed After its Kind: Gen1:11Posted: May 4, 2015 Filed under: Flowers, Nature, photography, Plant Portraits, Still Life, Uncategorized | Tags: botanical, close up, Flowers, photography, still life 2 Comments
I’d set up a still life with a Dandelion clock in a small pot and took a few shots, then I had to leave it to attend to other things. When I came back, the card I’d used as a back-drop had fallen on top of my set-up so I thought that was that!
However – it wasn’t completely demolished, just a broken stem, so I decided it would add interest to the image. Here are a couple of shots before the near disaster happened …..
I tried a variation by transferring the dandelion to a similar pot, this time coloured blue/green …. this made a lot of the seeds scatter all over the place , so I did a little bit of re-arranging.
Of the four shots I much prefer the first. For me it is more interesting than the pre near disaster shots and more open and brighter than the last.
Hi David, thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know your thoughts on my efforts …. I really appreciate it, bless you, Eileen
