While the Monochrome Madness Challenge has been great in getting me to do more black and white, I have to say I have done some before as well. Okay not lots, but some. Recently I was looking through something and I found an image that I had done some time ago, perhaps two years ago, and I had forgotten how much I liked it.
I loved how close and person you got with the tip of the lily. I also really liked how you could see the textures on the flower too. I just have always really like this composition and making the image black and white really seemed to suit it.
I am pretty sure this is the same flower, but from a different angle. Again the black and white did just suit it. It is one thing I do like about black and white, the way you just look at shape and texture, even mood.
My lilies in the garden are slowly recovering from the hot summer and I hope I will be able to start picking some soon and doing some photos with them. They are such a beautiful flower to photograph. If I ever get my extension tubes it will be fun seeing what else I can get with those.
This was meant to be a quick post today, I’m a bit tired, it has been a very busy seven days. I am looking forward to do nothing, though I need to start working on some images from the Pink Lakes, which I am excited about. It is also going to be a very foggy morning tomorrow morning, so I want to get out there with my camera, and capture some foggy images, maybe one will be perfect for MMC9.
Next Up for Discussion Post.
On Tuesday I am going to do a post on HDR photography for my Up for Discussion post. I know many people have questions about HDR photography, so I am happy for you to submit your questions to me and I will put them at the end of the post, so hopefully some other people can give you answers, especially if I don’t know the answer. If you have a question, email it to me and put HDR in the subject line.
As usual the gallery so you can look at the images individually.
