Good morning everyone,
Like lots of subjects, it is sometimes easy to look through our eyes and think, 'that is gorgeous'...a landscape, a person, flowers. But on many occasions, the photograph we take doesn't seem to do justice to what we feel at the moment. With all photography there is an element of emotion even when there aren't people in the photograph. Photographs create an emotional response in us when we identify with them and the photograph is always much better if we can capture that emotion somehow.
Lots of blossom together looks stunning, but is difficult to capture effectively; often the result is a busy undirected image in which our eye is constantly searching for the focal point. Ok, so we want to minimise the distractions and get the subject to stand out. This is definitely one of the challenges of the plum blossom photographs I took recently.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the images.
