Flowers of Love

6 Jul

So I am a total wannabe photographer. As in, this is still the only camera I have. Lame. However, I do love photographing flowers and clouds more than most things in life, so you guys get to read about it! The newest addition to the Liz Love Wannabe World of Photography is (get ready for it…) my FREE TRIAL of Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended!!!! That’s right, ladies and gentleman, yours for the low, low price of FREE for 30 whole days!! I’ve been working with it for the past couple of days, and by working with it I mean doing really the only thing I know how to do, which you will see below. It’s not terribly complicated – but it’s time consuming.

The original pictures I took of my parent’s truly incredible garden back home in Nebraska. Now that they are both retired (yay!), they have been spending some serious time back there. I took a bunch of pictures before I moved to Austin and put a few of them in a frame for their room. But it doesn’t stop there. Then I printed a bunch of them out in sepia and backed them and hung them on my wall in my old apartment. And NOW – I’m working on a project that might end up in a dear friend’s office, if she actually likes them when I’m done. :)

This was the first that I did – one of the many different kinds of lilies in the backyard.

And this is the one I just finished last night. (And my mom is going to have to help me out with what kind it is…)

The coolest thing about that one is that the flower is actually about the size of a quarter in real life.

I’m working on a couple more, so stay tuned. I know they aren’t perfect, but I am having entirely too much fun doing them. To all of my friends that are ACTUALLY photographers – don’t make fun! ;) Here’s one for the road – it’s my favorite of the originals. Ciao!

    It’s an allium. Nice work.

    Hey Miss Elizabeth! I LOVE the title of your LOVELY blog. I like your flower photos, especially the pink buds. We are looking for a new camera. What camera do you have?
