I have a small rose bush in my garden which burst into beautiful flowers this year. It made me feel inspired and willing to experiment with the photos where I captured it.
You see, using textures in editing might have been fashionable a few years back, yet I believe that using a technique is not just a question of fashion, it is also a question of what you want to achieve and where you want to arrive. The texture I used and the photo I applied it to let me mold their expression to something that speaks to me.
Although I am not generally a fan of bright colours and prefer muted tones, that simplicity in the composition and colour spectrum balanced for me the prominent pink and green hues.
Our garden does not look perfect at all but I love all the “common” beauty it offers…
