New Photos: Experimenting

Hello!

Today I crabbed my camera [or it's actually H's but I get to borrow it]
and had a small photo shooting session.
I thought it would be the time to improve my photos again
so below are examples what I came up with.

What I find important is the nice natural light
which means it needs to be a sunny day [not guaranteed here!]
I hoped to bring a bit of spring spirit to my item shots
so I added flowers as props
[they are not real but still look quite pretty]
I tried to go close to the item and
I used a wide shutter to reach more depth to the photo.
I love pictures that aren't equally sharp but have
small points in focus and the rest of the picture may be blurred
They simply look appealing and interesting to me.











I'm constantly struggling to find the right color balance
as I'm looking for a little dreamy look
but still want to keep the colors true.
One thing is sure though:
photos are never ready when they come
straight out of camera but need some editing too.

Well, there's always room for improvement!

i wish i could find more natural light here too.it's been so rainy and dreary.i gave up and bought a back drop and photo lights-which, though not natural are the only thing i've been able to use lately.
