Capturing light is at the heart of photography. The light changes with each passing minute, each passing hour. From harsh light to golden light to blue light, each time of day is different. And the light you see will be what your working with.
At twilight, the light changes again. It brings out some colors while hiding others. Its all in what you want to see.
Its raining, the water making its way to the ground. Slowwly dripping from the petals of our poppies, they begin to glisten. The poppy drops.
This image to me reads left to right. Almost like looking through a surfer’s wave, it rains.
This week we were to attempt to imitate one of the master photographers. I chose to imitate Philippe Halsman. He is well known for having the most images on Life Magazine’s cover. His incredible portraits include Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill, and Albert Einstein.
In my photo, I attempted to give that low key contrast as much as I could. The room was full of windows which led to some interesting shadows.
“Bloom and the Daisies”
They are the stars of the show, so charismatic, so sweet. Bloom rises up for the final note, so certain that its there. And it is…goosebumps.
The petals are fragile, delicate. Its life visible right in the bud’s veins. Filled with chlorophyll, the bud prepares for the next stage of its life. The stage that gives us life. Nutrition at its most simplest form, the peapod.
