Today it is Valentine’s Day, a great opportunity to photograph flowers. Buy your loved-one some flowers and before you give them to her/him, photograph them. What a great exercise for this week!
I bought 12 roses and a friend of mine created a wonderful arrangement. I decided to start out with one rose. In order to add a nice touch to the photograph I used my sprayer to create some mist. I used one strobe light from the left, the light softened by an umbrella, and a fill in reflector on the right side.
One more tip: If you use Photoshop, duplicate the original image. Use “Gaussian” blur on the the duplicate layer to blur the image at a radius around “4 pixels” and the use “overlay” to create your image.
As always: Have fun with this exercise!
