The Big Photo Challenge...

The Big Photo Challenge

This week's Big Photo Challenge, hosted by Adorible Photography is Green...
This was a tough challenge for me because I love green {you might have picked up on this by looking at my blog}!  I tried some interesting shots of my favorite new green pillows, a collection of my favorite green knick-knacks, and a shot of some new green fabric I just bought...none of it was quite right, so I headed out into my garden...
At first your eye sees the lovely lavender, but then you can soak up all the amazing greens in the background.  I took about 8 shots of these little flowers before I captured just the right mix of sharp detail on the flowers and softness in the green stems. I was also trying to maximize the number of green shades that are discernible in the background.  They are all part of the same plant but the light causes many different shades. 

I used my Canon Rebel xsi and I was shooting in the macro setting.  The flowers are mine too...I have two large clumps of lavender and they smell amazing right now.


  1. You could have got something like yellow with green..That would look more beautiful.!

  2. I love the way you captured the green as the background. Pretty

  3. Ooooh I like that - I was just thinking it would make a great picture on a wall :)

  4. Love the contrast, especially with the green in the back and blurred.


I love hearing from my readers...please leave a comment!
