Photography on the blog 5


Today I was at Blog On Cymru in Cardiff.  This meant I was up early for a weekend,  but was worth the effort for the goody bag alone but that is another post.  The best thing today was Lucy teaching me some photography skills, and it appears I have a bit of a natural talent for “staged flat lay photography”. I’ll share a few images here and I would love your opinions please.

The book is opened on Welsh Poppy as I was in Wales.

Glass bottle.

Very pale looking but I think it works.

A bit of bright colour.

Odd angle, not sure if it worked.

I like this one.

Flower heads and petals. Playing with flash.

A classic kind of look.

I so wanted to steal these paper flowers from Lucy. (But I didn't).

It seems “point and shoot” photography is not what I should do, not when I can set up fabulous shots like the ones above.
Time to get a props box I thong,  no more dull, boring, poorly lit images in reviews. Okay my “action” photography will still be awful average looking but Lucy you’ve inspired me my dear. I want to redo most of my product photos now like you suggested,  but I really am not sure I have that level of patience so this won’t be a retro improvement.  Sorry readers, but from now on I’ll try harder on my still subjects.
