I had the camera set on a low f-stop and high shutter speed. The trees shaded us and I knew the bright background light would blow out. There is just enough variation in the background to suggest a colorful pasture.
Red and Green Bloom
I was channeling the rule of thirds when I shot this blooming flower.
Sky High Flower
I laid down on the ground and manually focused on the flower. Then I put the camera down in the same spot on the ground and tilted it toward the sky.
Potted Beauty 1
I lost myself shooting in this garden. I kept moving things around, holding them in the air, tilting this way and that.
These feathers were just lying on the porch. I stood them up and did some adjusting until the composition came to life.
I saw this hanging and was transported from my location on the “tan-handle” of Florida to the dusty Southwest.
I love the color palette in this shot and like the previous ones I adjusted the flowers and moved around on the porch until I saw perfection.
I loved shooting in this greenhouse. Diffused light poured in like milk.
I adjusted my lens a number of times trying to sort out the focal point. The rustic tones and worn wood co-existed in simplicity.
Whenever I photograph kids in their element I get shoot from their level.

Kids don’t still very long for photos and Sophie was no exception.
