Catching the Bloom

Hey everyone,

We have a bouquet of flowers in my house, and the lilies and roses are so beautiful. I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to play around with all the features on the camera. Up to this point, I really only used the automatic setting and just let it do what it wanted. This was both good and bad. It was a whole lot faster, but it did not do everything that I wanted it to. For example, I would not use the close up button to get details. For these photos I was experimenting with colors, the amount of light, and what the flash would to. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.

This is one of my favorites, because it reminds me of Beauty and the Beast. To me it captures the flower just as it is going away.

I love this feature. It gives the flowers an antique appearance and makes me think of the old west.

This flower reminds me of old black and white movies I watch.

This is another one of my favorites. I really liked how the flash turned some of the flower yellow.
