107. The Colour Purple

I'm not really one for taking pictures of flowers. It seems to be simultaneously too easy and too difficult. It's too easy because they are so beautiful that pictures of them should automatically good. But its too difficult, because how can you really improve on the original. It takes a truly special photographer to take pictures of flowers and make them look fresh and exciting. That's why I rarely try - I know I'm on a hiding to nothing. I am not of the ability to take shots that good. That said, I am more than willing to learn, so if anyone has any advice it would be more than welcome.
rokas Colour is so deep that it looks almost unreal... I think it would look great as a canvas print.

????? Either you love them or you don't...if you do then observe and feel the joy of them, you'll definately want to photograph, paint or write about them...if you don't...well why bother?

lyricalthoughts hey you know.. they look absolutely gorgeous to me! the color of the flowers is rich and very purple..I know what you mean.. but I guess we can take it on a different angle.. with the background of the sky or perhaps any good background.. but your picture has already achieved it. Believe me. :)

????? For someone who is not really into taking pictures of flowers, these turned out beautiful. Have more confidence ...

GKorts I know what you are talking about. But isn´t the same with all kind of photography? How often I stood in a beautiful landscape and was later on disappointed about the output.
In any case this is a good job on flowers with an outstanding No 3

manuele queste foto sono bellissime, mi piace molto la n°3

????? I know, too. I try with flowers in my garden and elsewhere but then I realize the colours often are not the same tone (red becomes almonst pink in my photos, etc.) and it depends of the light intensity, too. So I take shots at different hours of the day to see how colours react... I'm just practising ;-)
Your shots are well done anyway and I like them, above all the flower in no.3 has a beautiful intense "original" colour.

mshafie great work...

????? I find flowers very hard. I think it's subject matter that most people can appreciate and therefore think are "pretty" in general; but I personally as a photographer have been challenged by flowers for years. Maybe you have to pretend you like flowers? That's what I started doing. I am not a flower person, but I tell myself I am and that actually makes it easier to try to find original dof and angles. I think the lighting on these turned out very nice ;~)

????? I agree with your post - flowers are an oddly difficult one; but I think you did a great job on the last one.
????? · 2010-04-18: 13:35
