As some of you know, I've been trying to teach myself a bit about photo composition and photography in general, so I've been taking pictures of more than just teas and teawares (though most of what I've snapped are boring flower photos). Anyway, here are a few I took today:
Does anyone know what kind of flower this is, by the way? My dad says they are roses, and they have thorns, but as Salsero pointed out once before the petals don't look like typical rose petals.
This is one of those instances when I wish I had more than a point and shoot. I could not for the life of me get my camera to focus on that darned blue flower!
I was actually going to throw this photo out, as I was trying to snap a typical flower picture with the stamen/etc. in focus. The way this one turned out is much more... expressive, even a bit sexy.
I think this is my favorite of this bunch. The lighting turned out much better than it usually does in my pictures!
Anyway, I hope these are enjoyable, or at least a bit pleasing to the eye. If any of you photographers out there have any tips/critiques, have at 'em! I'll take all the help I can get.
