Day 133

I didn't get my flowers home yesterday until after dark, so today I got a chance to take photos of them in daylight. I don't have any photo lights and I had to do yesterday's shoot using the task lighting in the kitchen, which isn't ideal.

I'm not particularly keen on the results of today's shoot. I want a macro lens so that I can get closer. There's a very cute little spider living in amongst the flowers, and I took some shots of him/her, but none of them came out very well. Again, that's a job for a macro lens!


  1. These are lovely Helen. I can't wait until you get a macro lens because I just know you're going to take beautiful pictures with it. I don't have any photo lighting either and usually have to do quite a bit of developing in Lightroom to get my indoor photos to work. Otherwise they seem to come out looking very yellow, even with the white balance set correctly.

  2. Beautiful. Second one is my fave.

  3. I agree these are lovely, hope you can get your macro lens soon, can you hire one for a while? I have the canon 60mm and 100mm, the 60 is fantastic!

  4. I think these are great Helen!
    I especially love the second one!
    Wonderfully done!
