#100daysof_flowerstyle - Day 1

#100daysof_flowerstyle-  Day 1

Over on Instagram, I'm participating in the 2016 100 day project.  The details can be found here.

So beginning today April 19 until July 27, I'm going to challenge myself to style a flower photo everyday.  Have you noticed that most of my flower photos only contain a single flower?  It's my go to formula for my photos and I guess it is my style.  But I need to challenge myself to try something a bit different and to move out of my comfort zone.  I find styling doesn't come naturally to me.

For Day 1, I decided to create a bougainvillea bouquet out of some flowers in the backyard. I love this colour combination of purple, magenta, pink, orange and white. To help the bouquet look fuller, I used sticky tape in a grid pattern across the opening of the mason jar. This really helped to hold everything in place.

Here's a couple I created using a white board instead of black.

All images were taken on an iPhone5C using the ProCamera app and edited in Mextures.

Why not join me in your very own 100 day project. You just might discover something creative that you really enjoy. 

Remember to make everyday beautiful.
