I like to try and photograph different things...practicing focus, composition, and lighting, etc. I started using flowers a lot because they were cheap, stayed where I put them, didn't talk back or need to use the rest room, be bribed with candy plus they come in various colors that allow me to work on lighting and camera settings. Win win.

I'm saying all of this since last week I posted an image of a flower and I am doing it again this week. But there are some differences. Last week was soft and dreamy with an isolated focal point. This week is just bold color and dramatic, albeit, natural light. You end up with two photos that are vastly different even if they are both flowers. Lessons to be learned here for portraits don't you think?

Linking up with Sweet Shot Tuesday.
