Silent Beauty

Plants and flowers are there, doing their thing. I know that I tend to take them for granted, but when I have my camera and enough time to pause with a creative eye, I find great respect in the variety and beauty of plants. It’s fun to compose shots like these, whether in-studio or out in the fields and forest. I typically rely on light modifiers to diffuse, bounce or fill the available light so that I can focus on depicting flowers, trees, bushes, leaves, etc. in a visually interesting way. Shooting plant life has proven to be a great outdoor activity for me. Haven’t gotten poison ivy yet.
