Rainy Abstract

Despite the rainy weather, I decided to take my camera outdoors for abstract shots. The light was soft, but dim, so the tripod was a must. Damp surfaces also have a different look about them, not to mention the rain drops adorning various surfaces.

Vegitation on White

I decided to bring some plant life indoors and give it the studio on white treatment. One of my first ideas was to group this bunch of marigolds in a style reminiscent of an old picture at my grandma’s house.

Next, I moved on to these purple wildflowers that I often discard as weeds. Most of them grow in the property line by the corn field. I brought them inside for a clean background.

Lastly, I photographed this sprig of clover, a ubiquitous piece of vegetation in my area.
