Default Flowers for A Muse

I have abandoned my favorites workers for some time and must get back to giving them fine brewed coffee, sharing cut up fruit and then creating in the studio.


In preparation, I bought some fresh flowers.


I wanted something stark, unusual and colorful but complicated. So here are my flowers, by themselves, lit by window light to be my muse until the girls return.

January 2018, Windowl Light
Fuji GFX, Fuji G 32-64 mm
32mm, i/40 sec, f22, ISO 320
Photoshop CC 2018




I hope you like this.

Asher

Oh yes Asher... I like it ! Well done. Nice flowers.

The specular light of the Sun doesn't bother, at all !

Perhaps you could remove the bananas in the back...

Antonio,

Thanks,

Why would specular light be ever an issue?

Disha,

Those are kind and welcome words. The design just takes advantage of the sun breaking through atctgecedge of the window frame and causing the specular star effect!

The fruit was just where it was! For subsequent pictures it will be separated!

We are here to help and encourage one another. What camera are you using and where are you up to in building a collection of favorites?

Can you share some pictures?
