I decide to do a triptych today. In the first image I shot down on the flowers and showed a bit of white to give some depth to the image. Image two I wanted to play stylist! I should definitely keep my day job--styling takes skills that I don't possess. Image 3, I put the flowers in my shower and wanted to blow out the background to get rid of the shower walls. I slowed the shutter and I got the blown effect I wanted. The image is not so sharp because of the long lens and the slow shutter.
Lesson: Have an idea in mind before you shoot. This one was not fully thought out. Sketching an idea out before hand would have been a good idea. Change your custom white balance when you change lighting conditions. Forgot to do that and ended up having to add a filter in PS to get rid of the yellow tungsten light. THe goal is to use PS minimally.
Tomorrow: Photograph a correctly exposed egg in an unusual way.
