You may remember my Christmas bauble photo after I took my tree down in January. I had a lot of fun arranging them on the floor for a rainbowtastic photo or two (or ten)!
I recently started a new job and needed a new mouse mat and decided to get one printed with my own photo. Rather than a very seasonal, festive image, I decided to recreate the photo using flowers instead!
Cue a mad dash around various florists trying to find all the colours I needed! So much fun! Here's a list of the flowers I ended up with...
Red - Roses and Carnations
Orange - Gerberas and Roses
Yellow - Chrysanthemums, Gerberas, Roses and a Sunflower
Green - Button & Bloom Chrysanthemums with a few leaves from my garden
Blue - Delphiniums
Purple - Lisianthus and Sea Lavender
Pink - Roses, Stocks and Carnations
After I took a couple of shots I planned, I played around with long exposures with ICM (In Camera Movement - moving the camera while the shutter is open to get blurry effects).
Lots of fun and a much needed, fun, personal project amongst the overwhelm of a new job, running & creating TDL magazine and busy client work lately!
Here's a little behind the scenes shot of how I set this up....
