Thread: Well,.... they're flowers....

    Well,.... they're flowers....

    Just curious. What do you think about this - lighting and all?

    Well,.... they're flowers....

    Bouquets are harder to make something "different" of than one would just think.

    Hi katy, pretty bouquet of flowers. The lighting is a little to 'hard' in my opinion. If it was diffused or shot later in the day, that would help alot. You also have a few editing artifacts in the top right side.

    They are pretty flowers. It's a little bright for me and there are some halos in the top right. You are right. Bouquets are not easy, at all.

    Here's a toned down version. I had the diffuser right there but was playing with the "summery" glow. Those halos were from the slight vignette that I added. Being slightly lazy, I edited them in iphoto, which, as per usual, they weren't there when I edited them. Is it better. (But, oops, I'm thinking, now, that I didn't recheck them outside of edit. Too late! I'm going to bed, now.)

    Well,.... they're flowers....

    Here's a safer version.

    Well,.... they're flowers....

    Flapdoodle! I think that iphoto really isn't saving what I did. (I have witnesses about this problem.) I'll rework them in Photoshop in the morning.

    Hi,
    Still-life photography is a very complex one. I don't try to tell You about lighting. I call Paul Cezanne to tell You about... "and all" that means angles,equilibrium and proportions looking at His still-life:"The Blue Vase","Dahlias","Bouquet with Small Delft Vase".Below I try to show You what that could mean on Your shot.

    Thanks, again, for the fresh feedback. I think that still life and bouquets are a bit trickier than one would think - kind of like Christmas trees. Radu, very nifty and good thinking "outside of the box"!
