Photography 101: Glass

Day 17:  A piece of glass is required to meet today’s assignment, with the idea of incorporating it into the photos in an interesting way.

This glass vase full of several types of daffodils from our yard looks interesting when up lit by a very bright LED flashlight.

The Photo 101 assignment mentioned trying photos with and without the flash.

Pretty daffodils, but the photo is not nearly as unique when I use the flash. I can hardly see that the flashlight is on in this photo.

You can add a lot of drama to your photographs with a simple LED flashlight, even without using it to blind your friends!  (Lol.  You can read a previous post for that story.)

Using PicMonkey editing tools, I adjusted the color temperature more cool (blue) and added dark edges to this photo.

Flowers are blooming, trees are budding, sparrows are settling into our new birdhouses, and robins are staking out territories in the yard.  Aaahhh…I enjoy spring!  Don’t you?
