This week's Project 52 assignment was to photograph flowers.  We could use either natural light or flash.  However, there was a catch:  we had to also include at least 4 other objects.  Hmm....

 

I spent a lot of time, finding material for this shot.  Fortunately, Angela's backyard garden still had some daisies left, and the backyard had lots of leaves.  Better yet, she hadn't put away the gloves and gardening shears.  I was set!

 

I tried shooting this in portrait orientation.  Unfortunately, my first attempt result in a nice big leaf as the first thing that would be noticed.  On my second attempt, I eliminated the leaf problem, but found that I was cutting off the tips of the shears.  

 

I was immediately pleased when I switched orientation to landscape.

I shot this at

 

ISO 64

1/125 sec

f11

24 - 70/2.8 @ 46 mm

 

For lighting, I used 1 Godox SK300 in a softbox, with a scrim in front.  I put 2 scrims plus a 5-in-1 light diffuser in front of the second Godox SK300.

 

This was well received during this week's class.  Don's only suggestion was to slightly darken the background; and high light the shears a bit.  I used LR's adjustment brush tool for this.

 

This course is getting more interesting.  Next week's assignment is:  A Cook In His Kitchen.  Stay tuned.

 

Thanks for looking everyone.  :)

Well done

Thanks, Dennis.

Many thanks, everyone.

 

I have to say that I am really enjoying this course.  Don is an excellent teacher, and my fellow students are very supportive.  It is more like a community than a class.  :)
