Inside the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas is a beautiful Italian courtyard featuring this tiered fountain. But its bowls were filled with beautiful floral arrangements rather than water. I thought it was lovely but also illustrated a great decorating idea. Anyone in the north who moves a fountain indoors to protect from freezing, this is a wonderful way to enjoy it all winter long.
When I began photographing plants and gardens for my books, I was limited by standard 35mm color slides. All shots came back from processing as is because slides have no negative – they are direct positives. I was lucky to get a few marketable shots out of each roll. Those good shots remained as is in full frame forever.
Going digital changed all that. Not only can I correct a marginal shot, I can crop an image down to create a new shot with only part of the picture. I’d spend hours playing around with Photoshop to learn exactly what I could do to my pictures. That’s how I created my “art shots” which turn a photo into an impressionist painting.
The lath fern house at Sherman Library and Gardens on California’s south coast was originally a marginal shot too dark to be useful. But with a little digital magic it was transformed into a lush work of art.
I don’t sell these shots, I just create them for the joy of digitally rendering beautiful plant images. I use the high resolution originals to create personal greeting cards. I thought you’d like to do the same online, so even if you don’t have a printer you can send my FREE POSTCARDS from MoPlants.com http://www.moplants.com/free_postcards.php
