Photographing and experimenting with flowers is something Iove to do. It can be done indoors and therefore also in the winter and when the weather is bad. Because I don’t have an lighting set or a photography table, it is always improvising with what I do have. I shoot where the light is best. Sometimes in the livingroom in front of the window, sometimes on the dining table or on the counter in the kitchen.
I wanted a white background for these photos. So I use a white table or a reflection screen. That often works fine, but a photography table and an empty bedroom are on my wish list.
Freesias are flowers that remind me of my grandmother, who used to buy them a lot. I also like the delicious smell. They come in many different colors. A very nice flower to photograph, also because of the buds. They are so much fun!
Carnations are not my favorite flowers. I rarely buy them, but I wanted to take on the challenge this time. Result: the picture below and the knowledge that I still do not like carnations 🙂
I leave my flowers on a vase for a long time. Most people would say: too long. I feel flowers sometimes get beautiful shapes and colors when they wilt. Photos of seeds of dandelions and such can be beautiful too. I don’t mind the mess.
The anemone can be bought every spring and it is a flower where you can shoot in lots of beautiful ways. Here simply straight from above.
Scabiosa is also a difficult one for me. The next time I probably buy a rose or something.
