About the photograph: After a long, long, cold and snowy winter here in the Upper Valley region, the first signs of spring were a welcomed site. At one point I wasn't sure if the snow piles would melt in time to see the daffodils but fortunately it did.
For this photograph of a bunch of yellow daffodils, I wanted to capture the bright yellow of the flowers against a more monochromatic background to make them pop. I also wanted an old time vintage feel so I gathered some old gardening props and a vintage colored canning jar. To think I almost tossed that rustly old shovel head into the metal recycling. I shutter to think. Light from the side with a studio light and soft box, I wanted to mimic the light of a perhaps the sun pouring in from a shed window or a barn door. The image was further enhanced in post processing to give it a three dimension feeling. I was quite pleased with the overall composition and effect. There is probably eight hours of work behind what appears to be a causal image.
