Yes, that’s right Floral Friday is very late, but not cancelled, unlike many other events around Australia at the moment. For me, the worst one is the flower and garden show.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon trying something different with my macro flowers. It is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, that is doing some setups like still life.
I also wanted to try controlling the light. In the end, I don’t think I did a great job of it, but it was my first time. The last few months have been all about experimenting and I’ve learned a lot. I’m still don’t think I am any good at this kind of photography, but I like doing it.
There are quite a few of my dahlias flowering at them moment. I have 11 plants and 10 of them have flowers or buds. One was very late coming up, so it might be a while before it flowers. So I picked a couple and set up the scene to photograph. I used the macro lens for these.
There was light coming in, but I tried to reduce it so it wasn’t too strong. I am trying some new things there. However, a storm was coming and there wasn’t the bright light coming through the windows as I had hoped. Maybe on another day I should try it.
Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show
Sadly it has been announced that the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show for 2020 has been cancelled. A lot of large events have cancelled and I’m sure a lot more will be. I will have to wait until next year now.
