FROM A MOMENT IN SPRING
The natural follow up to the previous.
Amongst all the opulence, on the grass carpet, you could see that unfortunately people do not experience beauty in the same way, there were blossoms thrown all over the place, I saw two youngsters driving their bikes with their arms up, hitting every branch they could reach, leaving a trail of pink, they had fun... I don't judge them, remember my own youth, we've all done silly stuff that now, when you look or think back... you shake your head in disbelief... why? Because you are that age???
A broken off branch was left to wilt, I rescued it, it's adorning our dining room table now... not before I had photographed it in the studio, lol.
I love playing with light and shallow dof, trying out all kinds of lighting using gobos, flags and cutters, so indeed NO DIGITAL MANIPULATION, NO DODGING OR BURNING! Only painting with light, pushing the macro lens to the limit.
Have a sweet day and thanx, M, (*_*)
