This image went into Photoshop for some textures. And here ends my week of sunflowers!


A different style

I’m a fan of sunflowers in black and white. I added some split toning to the shadows in this one.

Sunflowers on a Chair

It’s Sunflower Week! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a still life. I thought my white chair was calling out for some sunflowers- so here we are! I took probably 15 photos and edited them in different ways. I just did a quick Lightroom edit on this one.

Light, Shadow, Light

The latest prompt for Kim Klassen’s Studio had to do with light and shadow, which she related to ups and downs in her own family. It was easy for me to use that metaphor for the twists and turns that have been part of our 2015.  Life has been mostly wonderful, but we have stepped into the shadows a few times in the last couple months.

Although I considered this theme, I have not yet done the still-life assignment.  Instead I took some sunrise lensbaby shots of the sunflowers I bought the other day (that I had INTENDED and STILL INTEND to use in a shadowy still life).  Somehow, I always find myself drawn to impromptu still lifes, rather than styled ones, and in this case, the morning sun on the sunflowers was too beautiful to pass up.  There is shadow in these images- but the light is predominant.
