Flower Portraits

A selection of flower photos taken with a fast, portrait lens for shallow depth-of-field and using negative space.

Photographed on a walk on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario yesterday afternoon. I added a slight vignette to the photos when editing.

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Focus on Flowers prompt.

Out In the Countryside

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Out In the Countryside prompt.

A small selection of photos from the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken over the weekend after Dale posted the prompt.

By some strange coincidence all the photos were taken with the same camera and lens combination, my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

Blue Flowers

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge prompt: Flowers: Blue or Purple.

I thought of two blue flowers that I find visually interesting, Borage and Chicory.

Flora and Fauna Friday: Borage flower and buds

A Borage flower in a garden in Nantwich, Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s. Photographed with a 300mm telephoto lens to isolate the flower and buds from the surrounding plants.

Chicory flower

A Chicory flower photographed on the side of a road on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

I like the delicate blues in the flower but I found the greens in the background overpowered the blues. So I desaturated the background until it was close to how I remembered the flower appearing when I took the photo.

Chicory.
