Faux No

16 comments:
 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!!!
woo hoo
; )

  2. Love your apartment!! I still can't do faux flowers. However I do have two faux boston ferns that look totally real, but will only use them if they look real enough that you have to touch them to see if they are or not.

  4. Your new to you house looks beautiful. My favorite California city. We lived there for a year many years ago. I just watched the movie It's Complicated, and her garden looked so much like yours.

  7. This looks gorgeous. I love this kind of style.
    And if you are afraid of buying art, because you don’t know exactly how the artwork will fit in your room download the Kooness App. This app, thanks to the augmented reality technology let you see a preview of the work on your wall.
