If you haven’t been here before, the wednesday experiment is a regular feature where I explore the random, spontaneous, and purely artistic side of my personal photography practice. I try not to let it be about the finished product, rather about the process. It is about challenging myself as a photographer, regardless of the outcome.
Today’s Wednesday experiment is inspired by Karen from Bliss Floral Design.
Apart from being an amazing floral artist, Karen is currently one of my fabulous Camera Playschoolers
Last night she turned up to class with not only a beautiful bunch of flowers for me, but she had baked some of the most A-MAZING vegan chocolate brownies I have ever tasted.
This was what was left by the end of the class. There was much debate as to whether I should photograph those last two, or just eat them…
(and yes playschoolers, that is indeed a shallow depth of field you are seeing, can you guess what f-stop??)
the brownies, sadly, no longer exist…
However, the flowers are still alive and well and filling my house with the most glorious perfume…
Of course they were beautifully arranged in a vase by Karen when she arrived, but I had to, well, deconstruct them a little for some wednesday-like experimentation.
thank you Karen! (and I did put the bouquet back together almost as good as your original arrangement…)
Happy Wednesday to you all!
