f/2.2 1/250 ISO200
I’m sorry to say the ‘old’ theme just didn’t inspire me today. And that’s okay. I told myself if I couldn’t stick to a theme for an entire week, I wouldn’t. Just wasn’t feeling the love today! Instead, I jetted to the arboretum again this morning. I am on a mission to see the giant magnolia blooms! No blooms yet, but soon. I read somewhere recently that the best light to photograph flowers is an overcast day. That it was today. I also read you should shoot with your shutter around 1/200, to compensate for any breezes that might move the flowers.
I also tried new processing today. I read this post about how to make your colors pop in Photoshop. Don’t get me wrong, I love actions, but I also like to know how things work. I also used textures from the Florabella Collection (sorry don’t remember which ones!)
I also used the *FREE* CoffeeShop Web Color Block It Action to frame up the flower. It took a little experimenting to get the size of the colorblock correct, but I just love it! Thanks Rita!!
