Our photo club issued a challenge to its members: Do something creative with flowers.
I selected the anthurium in image 1 on a black background with window light.
The first attempt at “doing something” with image 2 was to zoom the lens during a long exposure.
Next, with image 3, was to move the camera during a long exposure.
With image 4 I tried a triple exposure, repositioning the plant for each shot.
I finally got to what I really wanted to try out. Image 5 is three exposures of the same plant in different positions. I layered the images in Photoshop and blended them (somewhat imperfectly) together.
For Image 6 I adjusted the hue of each layer. There are almost unlimited colour variations available with this technique.
Finally, I thought I should try something less flamboyant for image 7 and only hue adjusted the flowers.
