February

 

February flew by in an instant but I still managed to capture lot’s of great things along the way. In my last I saw this and thought post I noted that Spring was slowly starting to arrive. Well in February, it arrived in abundance! Flowers were in full bloom, colourful fruit and veg were on display and the skies shone bright. This was perfect and resulted in me taking a fair few food and flower photos, purely by coincidence of course!

Flower Photography Trend

Posted On: Monday, July 27, 2015

For a while now there has been a new trend emerging in photography, particularly flower photography. The trend I’m talking about is the flat image, where there’s little tone and shadow within the photo and it appears to have a subtle white film over it, creating a delicate vintage feel to the overall image.

I guess you could say this trend has been prominent in photography for quite a while now and this is down to the rise in photography apps. Some say this is a cheats way to create this effect, and I tend to agree, but it lets the novice photographer create an image they might not necessarily be able to do otherwise. Controversial I know! When I take my photos, as long as the image is right in my camera first, then the app just enhances the overall look instantly. Here’s a few photos I’ve been experimenting with, I’m getting there!

It’s not just photography that features this flat photo trend, more and more products on the high street and online are applying this design and the results are wonderful and elegant…

So next time you photograph your favourite flower, food or building why not apply this flat style, it will enhance your photos more than you think.

Well I said last month that Spring had arrived but I think I underestimated it! April was beautiful and warm, which meant those flowers that were blooming in March were even more spectacular in April. There were pretty cherry blossom trees, which snowed delicate pink petals at the slightest of breezes and fields full of dazzling rape seed blooms contrasting against bright blue skies. Oh I did manage to capture some great signs and architecture in between…

Without realising I have had a theme running through my photo’s; rustic nature. I first noticed it when I began putting this post together, the colours are quite rustic and I feel like I’ve been away at a countryside retreat somewhere in the Provence regions of France, sadly I haven’t, everything you see here was shot in good old Yorkshire. It’s pleasantly surprising what this lovely country has to offer…
