Patio Flowers – Week #1

Since it is a brand new year, I am going to challenge myself to publish photos each week. All of my photo processing is done using a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop Elements. I also use the NIK Collection which is a plugin that can be used in both programs.

Daisies – Fun with Mylar

Reflective Daisies WP

“You use a mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul”, George Bernard Shaw. 

The Chicago Botanic Gardens offered an abstract photography class. I didn’t take the class because I am particularly fond of abstract photography, I enrolled because I had heard that the class material challenged students to look at the subject matter from a different perspective and creatively shoot.

The photograph above of two placed daisies was shot on a piece of mylar film.
