Flower Power

Big Sis and I have been experimenting with a new look for the photography recently. Honestly, it’s been a little nerve wracking trying to tweek the photos because most of the time Big Sis and I are divided about what looks good. We’ve joked for years that we’re like Yin and Yang because if she likes something, I usually don’t and vice-versa. But it’s been an eye opener seeing how these photographs can transform.

Just wow.

Here are a couple of flowers that really make a statement.

Pink tulips (Orton only)

Today Big Sis and I spent time pouring over photos that were recently shot and that we’re getting ready to upload to the Etsy store.

Whew! Talk about a ton of pics! Big Sis is a photo taking machine. This is the same woman that when she came to visit me in Canterbury, during my study abroad semester, took over 14 rolls of film just at Leeds castle alone. Yes, I said over 14. I told you she was a machine. Just thinking about the film development cost of that trip makes my nose bleed. >.<

But I realized while pouring through these newest ones that there is a certain look that Big Sis manages to attain in almost all of her shots. For me, it’s like she’s spotlighting these little plants in a way that I hadn’t seen them before. Β It’s a wonderful, amazing and dazzling thing. And yes I’m hella jealous of her but that’s okay. Check out this one that didn’t make the cut below.

This one turned out too dark.

So thankfully, there were a few good ones. It’s interesting how you can take 100’s of photos and in the end only get a handful that are spotlight quality. But then again all photos are special in their own way. πŸ˜‰
