Over the course of the last several days of my one photo a day challenge that I completed in 2021 I was waiting for a flower to bloom. I had moved my annuals from outside to inside hoping they would survive the winter. One plant in particular, a gerbera daisy, was doing quite well. It actually seemed to be thriving inside. The Gerbera daisy plant had actually developed a flower blossom. My… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 365. Well We did it. 1 photo a day for 365 days. That was quite an experience. I was hoping that this Gerbera Daisy would be in full bloom for the final photo of this project. And while it wasn’t quite in full bloom I was able to create some interesting photos. The petals had opened up farther than they were previously. I was able to… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 332. I’ve been watching as the geraniums I brought inside continue to grow through the fall. The plants have been growing flower buds. Patiently waiting for the flowers to develop enough to bloom. Finally the geranium flowers are beginning to blossom.
One photo a day challenge: Day 320. Photographed three different red flowers today. Each of the plants are doing well inside. They each have multiple blossoms on each plant. I settled on this photo as one that I liked best. In this image a whole cluster of flower blossoms is in the frame. What I was able to accomplish that I like is featuring as single flower blossom from the middle of… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 319. I always wonder how well my plants will grow once I bring them inside. All the plants are in different states of health from the onset of cold weather once I brought them incside. Some still had flowers. Others had gone to more of a dormant stage. Some of the flowers were still actively producing new flower blossoms. One of the more hardy plants, the… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 317. During what was mostly a rainy and gloomy day the sun peaked out for just a moment. This was my cue. Time to make the photos. I wanted to get outside and see if any of the few flowers still out there were blooming at all this deep into fall. There were still a few blossoms on one perennial. And there were also a few… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 316. Often when I photograph flowers I try to isolate a single flower blossom. Or even more specific I try to isolate a single part of the flower blossom. This is especially true when I am photographing flowers at home. Today I wanted to try something different. It was the perfect timing so I had to go for it now. I just happen to have a… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 312. There are some new blossoms on the flowers I brought inside. One pink flower. Another plant with a red flower. Setting up my indoor lighting options. Using a white background to help create nice clean look. The white background also helps reflect more light onto the subject. I repositioned the lighting and the background to get the composition that I wanted. I took a variety… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 271. We arrived home at just the right time. Put the dogs out. Got them fed. Then it was sunset. I wanted to try incorporating some of the flowers from our flower box into the image today. What do you think? Did it turn out ok?
Yet another rainy day here in upstate, New York. But as I have said over and over, that means I am blessed with the opportunity to photograph more flowers with water droplets. Today For many of the shots I actually took a few flower pots off the porch and set them out in the rain. It was still raining and I didn’t want to go out in the rain. And some of… Read More
