In photography – as in life – there’s often something quiet and unassuming in the corner that’s the most fascinating of all. It doesn’t scream out “look at me” or “here I am,” but when you see it, you know it’s the real deal.
In our crazy world, it’s getting more and more challenging to find those things. But, when you do, you know to hold on to it because it’s a rare gift in your eyes.
If you’re following The Daily Artisan blog, you know I enjoy photographing flowers. A lot. Their bright colors and designs are captivating and loved by cameras.
But if you’re missing out on noticing the beautiful, green, background leaves, your floral photographs may not be as complete as you’d like.
Of course if you’re shooting indoors in the studio, you’re not going to have this occur naturally. But if you’re outdoors shooting, take a moment to notice the beautiful shapes and patterns of the lovely leaves in the background (the quiet ones in the corner).
I’m drawn to leaves for their unassuming and confident being – always there and just waiting for you to notice what others have passed by.
Don’t miss out on something special because you didn’t take the time to see what’s in front of you.
