Well, I invested in a set of studio lights -- constant, fluorescent lights which are color corrected. I chose them because they are not very expensive, and they are cool (temperature) and energy efficient. I bought them from Calumet and am very happy with their service as well.
So I started playing around with flowers. I bought some dahlias at Trader Joes this weekend and found that the back looked as lovely as the front. I also have been working with some ostemarie lillies.
I also celebrated my wedding anniversary recently (3 wonderful years!). My husband, knowing my love of flowers, arranged for me to have flowers sent to me each month for the entire year. He laughs because we both know that means some great time behind the lens.
