After getting to know the flowers over lunch, I decided to start with the Hydrangea. Cut Hydrangeas don't always last as long as other cut flowers and I don't know how long ago these were cut. It's also been several years since I photographed Hydrangeas so I am excited by these. I'll probably photograph the White Daisies next. Simply because they are calling out to me.
The light coming in the window was partly cloudy on this morning. Perfect lighting to do a more high-key white-on-white type of photo. So I gathered my white backgrounds, white cloths and a vase I planned on using. Everything is set up by my window and the great soft light coming through. I also use a tripod and a remote release along with my Canon camera.
When I am shooting the photographs I put them into several positions. I check the light, how they look in that position and how the light hits them. I was drawn to do three different images. Even though each of these images will stand on its own as lovely image in a home decor setting, they are also images that will support each other when used in a grouping of three.
By the time I finally got these three images done the sun was moving and the light coming in the window was changing and becoming stronger than what I wanted. I was able to get in one more photograph of the White Daisies before calling it a day. Be sure and come back to see what I do with the yellow Daisies and hopefully a couple more shots of the white ones
