It seems spring is upon California right now with high 70’s predicted for today. We need more rain but I’m going to enjoy this weather today and soak up some sun on our deck. I’m still battling this cold although it’s slowly getting better thank goodness!
Yesterday I took a picture of this tulip and thought I’d share it with you. I used a softbox cube which can be purchased fairly cheaply on Amazon which can be seen here, a piece of black lacquer plastic to place the tulip on, and a black background which came with the softbox. I then turned on all the lights in the kitchen and used a small light that came with the cube and placed it on the outside of the cube to give a little bit more light. I thought I might have to use a flash but then realized this ended up being just the right amount of light.
Every year I seem to get this crazy chest cold. Hopefully some day soon I will get over it and be able to get out into life once again. But until then, took a picture of some tulips on our kitchen counter and processed it into what I hope is a pleasing image.
