Photography - light and shadow


When I'm not embroidering personalised hankies for customers, I can usually be found practising my photography. 

This weekend I did just that as the sunshine was perfect to explore a little light and shadow in photography.

I picked some stems from the garden and took them to my living room, where the sun was beaming in excitedly. I laid them on my old wooden chest and got snapping. Here's a selection of what I took. I haven't edited these in anyway, only cropped them. 

I really enjoyed playing with the light and especially the shadow patterns. I definitely want to explore this idea a bit more throughout spring, using a range of stems and flowers from my garden.
