Photo Feature Friday No. 3

Having discovered Photo Feature Friday on "A Rosy Note" last week, I have been looking forward to it all week.  Pink is the theme, which I had actually forgotten....but since yesterday afternoon, I've been photographing tiny pink roses that were marked down  from $5 to $2.50 in Walmart's floral display.  I have only a small west-facing kitchen window, where I set up my 'studio' background of an 18"x24" canvas, cheap towel, and lace tablecloth.  (f4.5, 1/45 sec., 400 ISO, 45 mm)

The textures are from Flypaper Textures' Spring Painterly collection:  Mystic Hues and Orange Blossom

So pretty and the textures make it seem so soft and Romantic! I love it... and studying the beautiful photos taken by others is inspiring me to learn more about the Art of Photography and improve my own skills for my photos.

What an inventive way to create a background.
A canvas board? Was it? Brilliant idea. I am always stuck for a background and himself is getting tired of holding up a piece ot cloth :-)
Good use of the bargain roses.
Mine are out, so I have no excuse.
