This article is the first in a series of short blogs I’m going to be doing where I write about a single photo I’ve taken on film and my experience behind it. I hope you enjoy this new idea and the photo.
I’ve been adding a bunch of sunflowers to my grocery order since the Covid-19 lockdown started because I need a subject to photograph indoors. I chose sunflowers for a project I am working on, and better yet, it’s the only flower I could find that I am not allergic to.
Being a Floridian, the heat and humidity become so unbearable this time of year, not to mention the incessant downpours, that I will have to become really creative if I want to scratch that itch of taking photos daily. So I set up a black velvet sheet, with two light boxes, a tripod, and took many shots with some sunflowers.
Have a great weekend and I hope that in all the darkness and craziness going on right now you can stop and enjoy the sun, or better yet a sun flower. – Aly
