Luckily, my sweetie Curtis sent me a big flower arrangement that had some big yellow posies that were perfect for the shoot. I kind of tore the flowers up and out of the basket to get them posed the way I wanted and lighted the right way, but I think he will appreciate that I was able to put them to good use!
Here are a couple of the blossoms laying out on the denim pillows from my fave old couch that we don't have any more. I like the close-up shot; the macro setting on the camera seems to give me the best results. I have to learn more about the aperture adjustments and then work on taking pictures before it's all dark in here in the evenings.
And here's a similar shot with a little different composition. I like the touch of orange from the curtains in the background.
I didn't really like any of the other posie poses that included the other colors in the basket, so these are the ones I'm standing by this week.
