Tuesday Tip - Getting Creative With Shadows

 
 

Do you ever start with one idea in mind and end up with something completely different?

That's what happened to me this week while working on a project for @withflowersinherphone.

I wanted to highlight the beauty of this wilted pansy I found in the garden. Because the flower was no longer open, I tried shooting from underneath.  But it wasn't working in the way I had intended.  So I thought I'd add some more light.  I grabbed the closest light source I had available - my iPad - and turned on the torch/flashlight.

Then the heart appeared.

 
 

This is not how I pictured my image would look like. But I'm really happy with the result.

Here's the final image:

As you can see from my behind the scenes image, it's possible to be creative with what you have on hand at home:  a white board and a light.

Thanks for reading and remember to make everyday beautiful.
