Giant Daisies

As well as the giant dandelion things, from my last post, we came across some delightful giant daisies during a walk around Carsington Water, Derbyshire. They’re quite common, but always nice to see. They photograph quite nicely too.

By getting close in the whiteness of the petals helps create a dark background. I also used an art filter setting in the camera, something i rarely do, which boosted the contrast and added a vignette, both of which helped make the flower really stand out.

I really like the way the flower stands out so well. I also like the detail of the stem in the bottom right. I wasn’t sure it would pick it up quite enough.

For this one i wanted to get something of another daisy in the background.








About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
