Lots of Blooms

Rose bouquet

We’re having a nice flush of blooms right now. Each morning I cut some bouquets to give and some to photograph. (You can click on the photos to see them bigger.)

My favorite places to photograph roses are on the blue chair on the back patio and on a table in our house with white paper behind it. No direct sunlight, because then there are harsh shadows and blown highlights.

The roses in the bouquets are Black Magic, Veterans’ Honor, Elle, Marilyn Monroe, Moondance and Moonstone.
