There’s something about flowers that just make me instantly happy. The way they can bloom into all different shapes, sizes and colours. Flowers are one of my favourite things to capture in a photograph and I can’t pass up an opportunity to be amongst them.
Today I visited a little field in a small town in Worcester. The minute I saw the fields, I turned into a puppy bouncing with energy. It was beautifully breathtaking. There are rows of different coloured English Delphiniums. It was a dream to lay my eyes upon and of course I snatched up the opportunity to get some photography practice, as well as having my boyfriend take some of me in my wishful habitat.
The fields are owned by the Real Flower Petal Confetti Company and are open to the public for approx. 10 days per year during their full bloom. Once this ends, they are hand-picked and converted to confetti.
So here are some of the photographs. I hope you enjoy the aesthetic as much as I do.
Over the past term of University, I took a Biological Photography and Imaging module. This was by far my favourite module as I love being behind the camera and capturing moments I can then treasure. For our assignment, we needed to complete a project of different images showing a story of a theme of our choice.
My theme was ‘Man Meets Nature’. The idea behind it was to show the interaction between the two. How when you go on a waterfall walk or just into the country, you automatically (well I do anyway), feel a sense of relief and serenity. It provides a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, so it was a theme I was proud to attempt to capture.
I decided I might as well show some of my images and see what people’s thoughts were! Criticism is always welcome as I’d love to know what I could do to improve.
There isn’t anything I dislike about photos. I love how photography has evolved, I love keeping (hoarding) photos and I love the memories behind each photo. My camera roll on my phone is full to the point where I have no storage and I have a one drive account for all the pictures I just can’t let go of. I am indeed one of those annoying people who constantly take photos wherever they go. Guilty. And before you say anything, yes, it’s important to make sure you’re actually living the memories rather than just taking a few snapshots and going about your day, but to me, I want to be able to look back at all the moments I’ve had. Whether I’m feeling a bit down in the dumps and need to remind myself of the good times or looking back at memories and thinking of how much I’ve changed since then. And just think, when you slowly start to lose your memory, you’ll be able to have proof of all the good times you had, even if you don’t remember what happened.
The point is, I got a little excited about getting my new camera sooo.. I went on a little walk around the campus lake and put my camera to the test. I loved the results and thought I’d share them. There will be plenty more photography related posts to come as I get to grips with my camera and start taking pictures of everything. Plus, I’m doing a photography module this semester and will be happy to share my work.
Camera: Canon EOS 700D.
