I finally broke down and purchased a new camera. My poor little Canon was so battered and grimy that I could barely see through the view finder. It's also about time I took the time to use my camera properly and quit taking the easy route of shooting just about everything in Auto mode.
So here are a few shots of some faux flowers!!!!
shhhhhh don't tell
using my new camera and experimenting with exposure and shutter speed
I found these flowers at Crate and Barrel
Shooting manually is actually really fun and gives you the opportunity to play around
with exposure and depth of field
Here are some close up shots of the little fake peonies
The hydrangea are not nearly as realistic but still pretty I think
these last two shots are really washed out and over exposed but I like them anyway
Can you do fake flowers?
They are pretty darn easy and are still looking fresh after a month!!!
