Bringing to life the wonder of the Lily

 Planting flowers as a little boy in my parents garden was sometimes boring but other days enjoyed as weeks later my eye's understood the beauty of gardening. Some say geek
and others say cool. I was taught to take care of the landscape and make the outside look refreshing. My family
always had a yard. Some small and others big. My brother and I shared the outside duties. And this is where my garden days began. Every house I had after growing up had some flowers and vegetables of some sort.

And a lily seemed to be a favorite for any yard that was planted. The many color's and styles seemed to catch my eye in the garden center. And as a photographer you
seem to run your lens up and through the garden looking for that special print to shoot and maybe mat
on a mat board to sell or hang on your own photo wall.

My red hot lily was brought to life by using special
on-line tips I picked up while playing with different
ways to bring a photo to the table.
Anyone can take a picture, but learning new ways to explode the print into another world that a new generation will understand best.
Times change but the photo is still the photo. Black and white of yester-years
are still hung in many galleries around the world. And color photo's are the new thinking of todays young or
fast shooting photographers. The field
is stronger than ever and changes in the photo world happen every day. I
myself take pride in black and white and other tones along with color.

As this chocolate lily brings the in between of color and darkness. Never settle for just a picture. Download to your computer and use the tricks and
treats the computer world offer's you. Use your mind when making the final
print to show your friends and family.

And than there is my pink lily that I seemed to treasure most while making this print. Years ago I used a dark room to bring a photo to life. We used chemicals, lights and hours getting a few good prints . Today the fast shooting camera and computer make the prints. With the help of the person pushing the buttons. So enjoy your camera and don't be afraid to take a chance at something you feel will work. Enjoy
