Behind the Scenes, Photographing Flowers
Just a quick note of appreciation for the 'rents. There's nothing like blogging to bring the family together! I must have taken well over a hundred shots for Claire's How-To Flower post. And at the end of the day, when the light was fading and we were still experimenting with composition, my dad ran to the garage to get some natural spectrum track lights he just so happened to have. We were able to keep shooting and tweaking until the light was too far gone and the shadows were too prominent. You can see here (below) some of the issues we were dealing with — too top-lit, too many cast shadows, too blown out. All good lessons in image capture. Thanks guys, for all your hard work and dedication!
