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.
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!
