April 10-on-10

I decided to go off on a different tangent this month for my normal 10 photos on the 10th. I normally post photos that document my family in some way. While that is perfectly good and wonderful, I decided change was indeed necessary. Stepping out of a rut is always good. It brings fresh perspective and opens the eyes to beauty in other avenues.

I received a bouquet of soft pink roses for my birthday last month. For at least a week, I enjoyed them as they sat in a simple vase on my counter top. I had no ambition or vision or even a hint of desire to pick up my camera. Finally, though, I new that I should at least try to capture a bit of the beauty gracing my kitchen before it faded away.

I chose to use different lenses, different locations, and different perspectives, but to edit them all the same way. I used two lenses: my 35mm to freelens and my 85 macro. The photos that follow were taken in different natural lighting conditions that ranged from super bright with little shadows to a more diffused light with a fair amount of shadows. I wanted to see what I would get based upon light and shadow when I synced my edit... I'm curious like that.

Here are the results of my little experiment....
