I just discovered a great resource to share: Greenpix goes into all of the issues of photography without wading so deep into the arcana that struggling would-be picture takers like me get lost. His latest post opens the floor to questions. Mine is: how the heck can I take a decent picture of white flowers? You may have noticed my frustration in this department. Several of the shots in recent posts (the Romneya coulteri, the ‘Casa Blancas’) were taken in bright daylight, so I thought once an overcast day came along, I would be home free.
Not so, and here are a couple of pix to prove it.
It’s almost as if the white burns out all detail. I know many of you have great success at this, because I have seen terrific shots on several of your blogs. Your input is always extremely helpful, and as soon as I hear from Greenpix on the subject, I will share it here. In the meantime, if you have posers of your own when it comes to photography, you might want to pop on over there and poke around.
