About This Image

Here is my staged flower entry. I used a 1200 year old Native American pot and wild flowers from the field by my house. The pot is on a beaver pelt. I used a combination of candle light and I LED flash light painted during the expousure. I used a black backdrop in a dark room. Thanks for looking. Don


Great Composition

Thanks Alan, Ikka, sandrak, and Brian. I had fun doing this one. I'm going to have to experiment more with staged shots this winter when the weather turns sour. There is always something to take a photo of, that is the great thing about this hobby. Don

This one is really unique. I like the ancient pot and the beaver fur along the bottom of the frame.
Guest - Aug 16, 2007 11:48 PM EDT
Beautiful staging and composition. I love the colours of the flowers as well. Very nicely done :)
Guest - Aug 16, 2007 06:17 PM EDT
Don, I like this composition and thank you for the description. With title it works well, that the flowers are not perfect arranged. I think it is a great work.
Guest - Aug 16, 2007 01:37 PM EDT
Beautiful photo Don!! All I can say is you sure have raised the bar way up there in the staged flower contest. LOL.... Great Job!!
Guest - Aug 16, 2007 09:28 AM EDT
Thanks Lorraine, Tania, Alandra, Carol, Karen and Alex! I really appreciate the kind words. Lorraine :-). I know flower arranging isn't my best skill. I kind of just jammed them in the pot. LOL Alandra. I have a small artifact collection with several of these Native American pots. I bought them as a bag of pieces and put them together, none of them are whole but I still like them for the history that is behind them. Thanks again everyone. Don
