Looking closely at vegetables is becoming just as interesting to me as flowers and little acorns. I guess that’s one of the gifts of photography, zooming in and studying the details that are always there but oftentimes overlooked.
After making a few photos of lettuce, I decided to play around in photoshop with “saturation” of colors. I always wanted to be a painter, and have an appreciation for abstract art, so this felt like a way to create something similar with photography.
I like the above photo, where I saturated it with color. Below I went the other way and did a sort of watercolor-wash. This seems more painterly and soft, which I really like a lot.
I cropped them both to go for a more abstract, color&shape kind of thing. So far I’m having fun with experimenting, and I know I’ll never get bored of the subject ~ nature’s infinitely beautiful shapes and colors!
