You Capture, Week Two

It has been a crazy couple of weeks here, with the kids and I going up to visit family the past two weekends. I felt like I hadn't really spent any time with my husband for two weeks. Usually when that happens I start to get a little cranky. Well I think my hubs knew that was coming because when I came home Sunday night these waiting on me.



I thought they would be perfect for this weeks you capture assignment: perspective. I remembered Beth's advice to just start shooting from different angles, so that is what I did. When I took this next shot I knew it was the one!


I love the bright colors and the way you can see the individual petals. (BTW no editing here!) I had so much fun with this "assignment." Here are a couple more of my favorite shots:





*Updated to add: After looking at Beth's photo I know it might look like I took her idea...but really I didn't. I took these pictures Monday afternoon;)

The second to last shot is my favorite, because it looks like the flower is reaching upward.

I have a picture hanging on my daughter's room my husband took on our honeymoon that is similar to the second picture. it is a flower in tight focus with the rest of the area blurred. It is blown up 11X14 and I love it! Great image!

The closeups are amazing. I have yet to take a picture that looks that good...maybe I really do need to look into a better camera! So glad your hubby knows you.

Nice job. How great that you started with the bouquet to show where your prospective shots originated. And the first one is so much my favorite. Those petal really pop AND its a view that you don't often see of a flower.
