The Rose

The Rose

Wednesday May 21, 2014

My wife is the gardener in our house and it is her loving care and attention that has enabled our roses to bloom. The colours are stunning and the texture of the petals is like satin. I love taking photographs of the flowers, but still want to do something that is a little more creative that just photographing a flower. On this shot I've used a low F stop to blur out the flower in the background and shot it handheld. Luckily the wind wasn't blowing too much and so it is pretty sharp. In Photoshop, I then dropped out the background into black and white just to enhance the beautiful colour. Hopefully it just makes the image a little more interesting, especially to those who don't particularly like photos of flowers!
