Daffodils 02


My wife bought a bunch of Daffodils and I picked three and I arranged them  from closed, little open to about half open. As a backdrop I used my light box and I used two 5600 kelvin light bulbs. Then I took eight exposures from 1/30 to 4 seconds all at f22 (Needles to say that I used a tripod). In post production I layered all eight exposures and created an image using different blending modes. The I gave it a final touch with Nik Color Efix pro to arrive at this image. I had in mind to create an image with vibrant colors and texture.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!

Daffodils 01

During Spring you will find Daffodils everywhere. They are also cheap to purchase and you will find many images of them online. This is a challenge and opportunity to create great images. Try to photograph and create images that you don’t see every day. think about your composition, work at your images and create great images.


When I researched Daffodils on a search engine, many images in full bloom showed up. Why not creating an image when they are still closed? I photographed these Daffodils in a flower bed in front of a house. Enjoy and keep your creative juices flowing!

Bottles 08


I started out photographing the entire pile of bottles and worked my way getting closer and closer towards the bottles until I only photographed just parts of them. For me this approach from large to small usually works just fine. I always get some interesting images out of it. The main point is, start and work your subject. It is well worth it.

Keep on photographing!

Bottles 04


Looking at the pile of bottles from all sides, heights and angles is important. You will be surprised how many images you will find just by changing your position. This is one of the reasons why many great photographers avoid zoom lenses. A good prime lens forces you to change your standpoint and that can make the difference between and okay image and a great image.

Keep on working and walking with your camera!
