The Wild Side of Tulips
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN FLOWERS DON'T COOPERATE?
Well, there's not much you can do except go with the flow!
These flowers weren't from my garden - they were from Wal-Mart and I bought a bunch because that is how they were sold.
When I got home and put them in a vase, they flopped all over the place. It was quite plain it wasn't going to be a dignified photo shoot of stately tulips in a vase.
Anyway I shot these tulips against a really white background.
Then when I started to work with the image in Paint Shop Pro, I selected a rather wild background image I had previously created.
I then worked with the "arithmetic" portion of Paint Shop Pro and finally got the tulips to be what I call "toned down wild."
I'm not sure, but I rather think that tulips are not the easiest flower to photograph in a floral still life.
Challenge for today:
See if you can have any luck with tulips!!!!!
