The Gerbera Daisy has got to be the easiest flower to photograph. The large petals and the central disk florets differ in all the variations, but all are quite beautiful. This is my latest Gerbera Daisy photo.

The Osteospermum

March 14, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I found some osteospermum flowers on my walk yesterday. I tried to photograph and process them a little differently from my usual process. Here are two examples. I'm not sure if I like them. The first one has a gradient background, and the second one has a painterly background. Click on the image to see both versions.

I have discovered the beauty of the Ranunculus flower. I have previously added a red, yellow and a pink ranunculus to my collection. The latest addition is a white Ranunculus. I'm hoping to get some more blooms from the plants I bought, so I can practice taking more photos.

I found some Ranunculus plants at Home Depot, and since I had never photographed them before, I bought a few to experiment with. This is a picture of a pink one. I also photographed a red and yellow flower. They almost look like roses when they are in full bloom.

I haven't done much photography during the holiday season, but I was given some daisies as a gift and this is one of them. I love daisies and the color pink so I am naturally drawn to them. In addition, there doesn't seem to be too much variety of flowers to choose from during the winter months.

Pink Gerbera Daisy

December 18, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
I took two photos of this daisy and processed them differently. I tried to leave one as natural as possible, but I wanted a more artistic look for the other version. Both were focused stacked with Helicon Focus. I have the artistic version to the right of this post. If you click on it, you'll see version 2, which I think looks more natural.

I found this little rose plant at the grocery store. The tag on it said it was a Victory Rose. I looked it up and found that the Victory rose is a hybrid tea rose that blooms continuously all summer with big, double, perfectly-formed blooms with a wonderful fragrance.
