This week I decided to explore my bamboo plant. I love this plant and haven’t really taken any pictures of it so it was the perfect subject for me this week. I started by shooting the pot it came in. I liked it enough to leave the bamboo in the original pot. You can see my chalkboard underneath. Nice little backdrop here.
I then backed up and shot the whole plant from every angle in the room and light settings and decided I liked this one the best.
I photographed the stalks…..
I placed the plant on the floor and pictured it from above with my feet…..
and finally one without.
I love these projects. It gives me a chance to explore my camera and my subject. Some of the shots actually came out interesting.
