Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements

Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements This month’s photography challenge have been the most enjoyable so far. It includes patterns and flowers, my two favourite things! Although I don’t feel like I learn anything other than what camera settings do not work and that I probably need to invest some money on lighting. Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Arranging patterns is something I enjoy and I believe it is what I am good at (heaving my big headed moment over here). However photographing it is quite a different story. When it came selecting camera settings I thought if I use highest f-stop (more about f-stop read here) I could select a large depth and therefore everything would look clear and focused. The outcome was not what I expected. The picture bellow looked blur with f22 which is why I ended up using the macro setting.Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements The other thing I knew I needed to perfect is the lighting. Since the patterns need to be repetitive I thought even lighting would be the best. To do that I needed the light glowing from above, which why I decided to do my shoot outside. Because only outside the natural light is all around you unlike indoors it only comes from the windows. I chose the day that was cloudy rather than sunny as I certainly did not want any harsh light. The turnout again was not that great. I still had some shadowing on one side of the picture. I don’t know why…

The other problem I encountered when photographing is the wind. As you can see in the picture bellow it was hard to keep my arrangements stationary :-D.Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangements Although I did not have much success with this challenge, I really enjoyed picking all these flowers, all found in our garden :-).Photography challenge: flower pattern arrangementsHave a lovely weekend xx
