More flowers!  My next lesson was supposed to be “Shooting Through” but I’m not ready to move on yet.  I am still working on the “Background” lesson.

The background of this little beauty is my swimming pool with a little added texture.  The early evening light made these pedals almost translucent.

 

5-2-18 Flower w-hose

I wanted to show you what I was working with here.  I thought the hose was a distraction, but then decided to use the curves of the hose as a background element.

This is what I got when I blurred out the hose.

Some might consider this a complete waste of time but I find it relaxing and it keeps my mind focused on just this.  Some people read books…. I play with flowers!
