Here is a shot of a not so wildflower, Lily of the Valley, a women I work with brought me a cupful of these not to long ago wondering if I could get her an image of her favorite flower.
After she dug them up and presented them to me I didn’t think I stood a chance of getting anything remotely positive out of this bunch of flowers, everything I usually shoot is either fresh cut or still in the ground, but with digital photography just about anything is possible and they actually turned out pretty nice.
I had to tape them to the back ground to keep them from drooping any farther and really had to work with the cloning tool to take out the brown and dried spots that had begun to form. What had started out to be a no way situation actually ended up being kinda of a challenge that I really enjoyed trying to pull off.
That has to be one of my favorite things about photography, and that is the ability to take a mundane object and turn into something beautiful, with the help of Photoshop and tape !!
