As part of a flower photography course I’m doing, one lesson was on contrajour – shooting into the light. Given the weather’s been shocking at weekends when I’m around to go out, I’ve struggled to do any of the course since before Christmas. But it was dry last weekend and we went for a walk on the Snowdrop trail at Evenley Wood Garden, and the light was perfect across these.
This was actually shot in daylight but I much preferred keeping the dark background for the shot’s impact. I’m sharing this for my week 6 of Project 52.
The rest of the week was standard. N had Monday off school ill with a bad cold (turned out just to be a 2 day thing), and was anxious for his train track order delivery to arrive. Who knew you could track where the delivery driver is and how many stops away on Amazon! Then school and work for us, with a Saturday treat going to the theatre to see Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella.
