A Single Flower – Cee’s Photo Challenge

Fluffytufts is taking part in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge! This week the challenge is to post images of a single flower.

Since getting back into photography over the last year, I have developed a previously undiscovered appreciation for the beauty of flowers. I enjoy getting really close to the flower and using the macro setting on my camera to capture every intricate detail.

Here are two of my favourite captures!

Contrasting Colours – Cee’s Photo Challenge

Fluffytufts is taking part in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge!  I am a little late with last week’s theme, “Contrasting Colours”.

I think the reason that I delayed in writing this post, is because I struggled to find any images that fitted the theme. I had to really search through my files to find the following photos. They do demonstrate contrasting colours, but I have to be honest, and say that I have never really put much thought into the colours in my photos.

This challenge made me stop and think about my photography style. I have come to realise that my method is much more focussed on the mathematical side: the rule of thirds, the framing of the image etc. I think that I will have to have a colour day where I will forget my ‘personal rules’ and just play with colour! I’m looking forward to it already!
