Illumination: Hollyhock, Tradescantia, Phlox

Morning is the best time to take pictures in my garden. Plants look different then. With each of three plants, I included their picture taken without morning sun.

  1. Beautiful photographs Tatyana. You mentioned an important fact about lighting that I really did not touch on. That each time during the day the photo will be different of a subject just due to how, what intensity and where the light hits. The color of the light changes throughout the day and affects the photo, some good, some bad. You got some nice lighting through and bouncing off the flowers. Thank you so much for joining, your fotos are always fabulous.

  2. You're right, early morning is the best time - though occasionally sun set can add a different colour value.

  3. A love your few of your garden. What I notice in this time of the year that the color's of photograps looks warmer then in full summer. Or is this just my idea?

  4. Beautiful! I love spiderwort and yours with the droplets on them really touch my heart. The hollyhocks are so pretty with the morning light. I haven't tried to grow them in my garden but these are inspiring!

  5. The illuminated hollyhock shows such detail that doesn't show up in the non-illuminated. Good pictorial.

  6. Таня, спасибо за чудесные фотографии. Мальва остается такой же сочной, а мои любимые флоксы... Просто буйство красок! Таня, скажи, а традесканция действительно таким голубым цветом цветет? Я знаю только о белых и розовых цветочках))) Третье фото снизу - волшебное. Можно его скопировать? Не налюбуюсь)))

  12. Tatyana, you have one of the best shots always, from the first time i saw your blog that has been sustained. We can see the effects of light more when you showed the contrast. But i love most that lone Tradescantia amidst water droplets. I hope you see mine so i can improve, thank you.

  22. I've never seen hollyhocks photographed so beautifully before, a unique perspective. I like how the lance shaped leaves in the first two photos contrast with the roundness of the flowers.

  23. Great pics! I too have Hollyhock flowering at the moment.

  24. No question about it...capturing just the right light makes a difference.
    Mornings are quite and peaceful and that glimemering out of focus background is heavenly.

  25. I'm so jealous. I used to have tons of hollyhocks, but since we moved to the woods none. I love that rich red color. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
