Photo Friday Week 1: Tulips

The best way to become a better photographer is to experiment. Light, angles, colour and distance all make a creative impact on photographs regardless of the camera. I love my DSLR and the ability to control so much of what the photograph looks like through aperture, exposure and shutter speed, but since learning how to use my camera on manual I have had to face it that to become a good photographer I need to improve the composition and contents of my photographs. I am starting to challenge myself to explore and experiment with the aim to become a better photographer.

The pictures below were taken on my iPhone. I used a LED light directed into the tulips which I held over a black dining room chair. I love the contrast between the flowers and the black background as well as how some parts of the flower seem to glow.
