Floral Friday – Images that made me rethink how I do flowers

I think the first time I went to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show was in 2015. I think I knew that it would be a great place for macro photography and it has been.

However, it was also the place, or rather the photos from the place showed me a way to process them and put my stamp on them. I just started playing with the photos and I really liked the outcome at the time.

Sometimes it is exactly what you need to do, just play and see what happens. I still think they are uniquely their own, and I haven’t always done images the same. Having said that, I do love how dark they are and I have continued with that for most of my macro flower shots.

I think I need to look at these again and maybe try going back to doing more of this. What do you think?

  1. Leanne, I liked the dark mood in these photos. At the same time, I must also say I love the set at the bottom of the post. The center light in those photos are captivatingly beautiful.

  2. That header photo is a stunner. Yes, I like your dark flower shots–it makes the colors just pop!
