Contrast

I was uninspired yesterday, but was in a photography mood.  I had been intending to photograph some huge leaves that came in a Trader Joe’s bouquet, so set them out and started shooting. When it was time to edit, nothing really appealed to me.  I ended up merging two photos and adding a Flypaper texture to create the image below.  It is nothing like the leafy, green, backlit shot I envisioned, but I like the contrasting shades and textures.

The second photo practically begged to be taken! I was planning to do a photoshoot with an old milk bottle on my dining table (and I sorta did. . .).  But for the first time in this Arizona house, I was captivated by the light! I love the contrast of the light and shadow as the late afternoon/early evening light came pouring through in the sliding glass door. This is why I love photography- it’s those unexpected moments!

  1. I love both of these shots for their dramatic contrast. And as much as I like the simplicity of the second shot I am captivated by the complexity of the first.
