One morning I thought of capturing this flower without any fuss, meaning without using my Canon dslr but instead just turned on my iPhone4s, found a piece of clean background and did some shots.

I chose to simply place it on one corner to get the minimalist look.

Have I succeeded? (^0^)

I have always liked edited photos, you know those ones that are colorful and look like straight out of children’s book. I always been a straigthforward photographer. I’ve only used my editing tools to crop photos or it they need a bit of brightness…but never heavily edited any.

Not until I discovered apps. And how fun it is editing photos on my iPad2! I often use my iPhone4s now and just use the iPad2 for editing, much easier on the bigger screen.

And since I also discovered that instagr.am is where I can showcase these kind of editing, I think I’ll be doing more editing in the future :) Only instagr.am service has gone down to the drain eversince it’s was bought by FB guy. Yeah him. A lot of great photographers have left the service and if you happen to use the service you’ll know what I’m talking about. Have you seen its ‘Popular Page’? All you’ll see are ugly faces, manicured nails, butts, and all those horrible photos which FB is more known of.

It has become another facebook. :/

One of the many flowers I have been buying lately to use on my low-light photography practise.  This gerbera daisy was one of my favorites because of the strong contrast it creates against my favorite black background. It looks life a face of a beautiful woman (well, at least for me)  :)

I remember one visitor who left a comment on my photoblog stating how she doesn’t like using black background for flowers. My take is that it really depends on someone’s taste. I can like what you hate and vise-versa.

Ah…let me just enjoy looking at my Daisy. Isn’t she pretty? :)
