Bouquet Study No.2 (2011)

“Why No.2?” you might ask. The images accompanying this post are from the second bouquet photographic study I have completed to date, but the first for 2011. “No. 1″ was done a year ago from today for a special purpose — celebrating the 10th wedding anniversary with my wife, which I surprised her with a bouquet and a small print of it that would last much, much longer. And, it was the start of an ongoing interest to always photograph flowers every time we have them in a vase at the house.

For me, photographing a bouquet at home (or a studio if you have one) is an excellent and extremely comfortable way to get more accommodated with your macro (85mm f/3.5 Micro NIKKOR) lens. Setting the flowers up on a table top close to a window with a small light directly above made for ideal conditions — and no chance of wind blowing things all over the place. I can take my time finding a multitude of compositions with a subject that can be freely arranged. From an all encompassing capture to the tiniest details.

It has been a good while since we had flowers in the house, so it might be the right occasion this weekend to surprise the wife again and immortalize a special bouquet with more print worthy images. Happy anniversary, Luv!

Location and date taken: At home somewhere in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, TX USA on 18-Jan-2011.
