It is not difficult to find tulips in interesting light, sometimes harsh, sometimes soft. It’s the contrast and backgrounds that made me decide to do them in black and white.  My photography has increasingly turned to black and white as it provides a different perspective on my subjects.

Wild flowers are nature at its best. Wild by nature. Forest light, specked light, direct sun and a lower perspective offer a great deal of options and approaches. In these photographs, in addition to doing both colour and black and white, I also played a bit with the focus.

There may be hundreds of ways to take photos of flowers in a garden, but I try to stick to those that have natural framing in whole or part. In my view it helps highlight the subject. Too often you see photographs where the subject is not clear and obvious.

Apart from a modest contrast fix these are as they came out-of-the-camera. It’s rare and I know people who claim it’s possible more often than not and those who claim it’s never possible. I believe it to be incredibly rare. Many out of camera photos in my view could use a touch up. But still miracles do happen.

Not every project or idea will bear fruit and some efforts will result in less than optimal results. Creative photographers have to take that chance, try new approaches, work on new ideas. But even the best photographers can tell stories of when things went wrong. I like these photos but I welcome your comments.

It turns out I do a great deal of flower photography. It’s an interesting subject  and because its static you can try more in-camera possibilities. Its one place I notice that I have less to edit when I get it right in camera. However, I still have noise, spots, exposure tweaks, levelling the horizon and sharpening to worry about.

These flowers lent themselves to a particular approach in-camera, of getting just the right aperture that took advantage of the distance of the subject from the background. As well in post-processing I ensured the subject stayed vibrant and stood out.
