One of my favorite unintentional things (at first) that I noticed while I was doing this shoot was that I was capturing a lot of contrasting color backgrounds for the flowers I was photographing.
During the editing process, however, I had loads of fun playing around with adjusting certain photographs, including this one, so that they’d show a greater contrast between the focus and the background.
In particular, I made a point to shoot more oranges than I normally do. I don’t know if anyone else has trouble with the color orange, but I’ve always found it to be pretentious, especially in sunlight. It doesn’t want to work with me and I’m still trying to figure out the best methods for capturing how gorgeous it can be. I’m pleased with the result of the squashy orange in the background of this photo though.
