Imperfect?

Thanks for the invite!

This was a shot of one of those "big daisies" in my garden. I can't think of the name offhand. Its one of my favourite shots because it is a simple shot of a simple subject which has turned into something very lovely, or so I'm told. I recently had a canvas print made of this as a gift, it turned out very well.

I waited patiently for these 2 lilies to open and they both opened together shot with a fujis2 with sigma 28mm macro lens.although I liked the original background I have a preference for isolated flowers against a black background and just knew these would look great..it was done by using photoshop cs2 enlarge image to about 300 to 400% then using the clone pattern tool use a black pattern and paint in all around the flower..be warned it takes about 3 hours..enjoy :)

I adore taking pictures of flowers myself- if I was not careful, my whole photostream would fill up with only flowers!


Do any of you go out specifically to shoot flowers, or do you just catch them 'by accident' when you see a nice one?

And what is your favourite time of day (& light!) to shoot flowers?
I love evening light myself...

Thank you BigBean for the invite to post my image here. As for how I accomplished this? I don't know really what to say to be honest. I was going stir crazy in the house for it had been raining 2 days in a row, so when there was a break in the rain, I ran out and captured a few of this flower. I don't remember what it's called, somebody told me but I've forgotten now.

It wasn't really difficult, I just wanted to capture the reflections in the droplets. So I moved the camera to include them, had the camera on either automatic or suppressed flash, and took the picture. Not much to it really.

As I recall, I only did a few things to edit this. I cropped this image, very slightly altered the hue as the camera captured it being more red than it was, and I definitely got rid of the exposed sky in the upper left using the clone tool on Photoshop. Thanks again for inviting me!

Still raining...
Jennifer Rowlands 10 years ago
As for going out specifically to take flowers, I don't normally. But when I'm stuck in the house (which is a lot in my case), I tend to take a lot of flower pictures then. I don't really have a favorite time of day for flower pictures, though I try hard to avoid direct sunlight, so usually take flower pics in the shade.
BigBean PRO 10 years ago
These are stunning!

I love the fact that your inspiration was the rain (sort of)! Being stuck inside because of bad weather can be quite inspiring when you finally get out!

Thanks for sharing these everybody, and telling us all a bit about them!

Anybody else have a favourite time of day?
Or maybe you like shooting by moonlight? : )

Here's the original photo:

Here's the result of a crop and some "playing around" with PhotoShop Elements:

I deepened the background by selecting it out with the magnet lasso tool, used the "sharpen more" tool till I liked what I saw, and boosted the color saturation. Ta-Dah!...another happy accident!
SebusPhotography 10 years ago
thx BigBean for the invite.
i am honored to show my photo here. you would like to know how i did this?! hmm ... , i walked through the garden and made some flowerphotos, when i discovered the potted hanging plant. the background was given. a dark brown woodn wall in the shadow and a white colored ceiling of the conopy. all i did was to find a position where the top of the plant touched the dark and the rest is in the white. i used a canon eos 400d with the standard canon lens 18-55mm. that is the whole magic. most of time i photograph like this. looking for a motive and a proper given background which highlights the motive.
i started photographing in may 2007 and don´t have so much equipment, just my eos 400d set including a EFS 18-55mm and a EF55-200mm 1:4.5-5.6 II USM lens. that´s it.
...so all together i just walk around watch the things and people around me and when i see something interesting i make photo.... for now!
hope you like my expose!? sorry for mistakes in my english.
joshcalebwray PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by joshcalebwray (member) 10 years ago
..and my favorite time to shoot is early morning or an overcast day..I took that original lily shot on a perfect overcast day in the garden of a friend who raises hybrid daylilies...every shot was perfectly exposed..because it was an early digital camera, the focus was kinda soft, but one can correct all that now with PhotoShop..hmmm. so I'm reworking some of those well-exposed shots and giving them another chance.

Wow I can't believe the members of this group are doing the explanations so well...Bravo .I shot this Iris in a church yard late in the afternoon. I was standing over the flower with my macro lens mode on. I just came out this way and I think i just may have upped the saturation a tad and I usually do lighting levels and curves in all my pics.

Thanks for the Invites to post in this thread I have two photos to show you guys, Both were taken with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi (400D) with a 2x teleconverter and a Sigma 105mm Macro Lens, I also took both of these on a tripod. The first one was tough because I wanted to get as close as possible to the flower which had a pretty long stem and kept moving in the wind, with a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second this was pretty tough to achive, so i took about 30 photos of the same subject and choose the best one out of them.



For the second one it was a side of the house where it wasn't that windy so I set the tripod up and took about 5 shots of it.

Thanks for the invite! This was taken at the botanical gardens, and there were so many flowers and plants, I really had to twist myself into a pretzel to get this shot without any distractions in the background. There was a pool behind it so I laid on the ground and squeezed between several large pots to get this.... I thought I'd get dozens of weird stares, but everyone was taking pictures so very few paid any attention to me!

Thank you for the kind invitation. I'm very happy to be a part of this group and already have enjoyed looking at the lovely captures here.

This shot was taken with a Canon PS 400, although I recently bought a Canon S3 because I wanted a better zoom.

I love to take photos of flowers, birds, animals and other things in nature, so when I spotted this flower, it was a "must" take! LOL In fact, I liked it so much that it became my avatar. It is untouched...shown just as it was shot.

Beauty is Everywhere if We Just Look!

I enjoy looking for patterns in nature, shade and sun, shapes and colors that appeal to me. It's always so satisfying to find something that has at least some of those elements.

While composing this shot, I kept in mind "The Rule of Thirds" and made use of negative spaces. For those who are not familiar with these terms, they are used by artists and photographers to enhance the interest in a drawing or picture/painting.

Several of the petals go outside the frame on purpose, as part of the composition. If there is time to compose the picture, it can make a significant difference in the result, rather than centering the flower or other object.

I didn't any time to compose this or anything. Just rushed the shot and left. Somehow it turned out the best photo I took that day.

Hi :)
I was visiting Portland with my wife and shot this in the Chinese Garden in Chinatown. I used D50 with the 18-55 kit lens at 55mm, 5.6f, 1/250. I cleaned the background and adjusted the curves a little bit. I didn't touch the flower except a little bit of sharpening.
I like the color change and sharpness of this image. Actually I wasn't expecting this picture to be this good because I shot it hand-held without a flash nor a reflector.

This is a Hypericum flower, taken in the walled garden in Brockwell Park in South London (which I imagine is quite a well kept secret).

These flowers always come out really well with a macro lens, so all I really had to do was hold the camera steady and get the shot in focus.

Nothing too exotic here, just some creamy yellow snapdragons in front of blue asters in my garden. I absolutely love the colour of those asters, and the contrast with the snapdragons was too good to pass up. The trick with this shot was the fancy contortions I had to get into to capture the asters (which were slightly shorter than the snapdragons) fully taking up the background. This was taken with a Sony Cyber-Shot in macro mode.
