Day 10 – Some Lavender from the garden
I had an idea last night for a photo of some lavender from our garden. I ended up forgetting about the idea I had until I saw the prop in the kitchen AFTER I took and edited the photo for today! Luckily I have a few ideas with the prop.
I started with photographing a close up, same setup as yesterday’s photo. Having totally forgotten about the original idea I started with some light painting, (I did that yesterday as well, but didn’t use the photo, was just playing around.) I then saw the camera battery was at 17%, couldn’t do light painting as I keep the shutter open for a few seconds to a minute which would eat the rest of the battery very quickly.
After a few boring close ups and the light painting idea out of the window, I started playing with shadows. I put the lavender on a piece of paper and started moving an LED light around so that the lavender would cast some nice shadows on the paper.
I like the final product. The edit has a sort of Vintage feel to it..
Here is the before picture, playing with the length of the shadows using an LED light.
Battery charging for tomorrow!
