After watching a Deborah Wirsu YouTube video on thread sketching a sunflower, I decided to practice on a small scale and make some fabric postcards.
First sunflower postcard.
Second sunflower postcard.
Some colors at McKinney Falls State Park.
I have had some good luck the past few times in choosing flowers at my grocery store.
While I had the white background set up, I photographed a lily.
This is my first attempt to photograph a flower indoors, against a black backdrop. I bought the rose at my grocery store along with the black construction (or poster) paper.
I only had one floor lamp (usually used for sewing) shining its light onto the rose and now that I post the photo, I can see the flower’s shadow. Funny how there are so many things I don’t see until I post a photo online. It goes along with not seeing any errors in an email until after you have sent it.
Here is the rose two days later, using a white background.
