This week I have chosen a photo that I took quite some time ago to enter for the MM Challenge on Leanne Cole’s blog.
I used to belong to our local camera club however with one thing and another I stopped attending. One day, one of the members (who lives only a few doors around the corner from me) knocked on the door and asked if he could pick some flowers from our garden for use in an workshop that afternoon.
I was more than happy to comply with his request. To cut a long story short, I attended the workshop and learned a few things about shooting in a darkened room using artificial light. I took a few wonderful photos on that day and returned home determined to try it out for myself.
The following photo is a result of my home experiments in our cramped spare room with the subject on the sofa under the window.
I really must try this technique again because the possibilities are endless and are not just confined to flowers.
