When I came back from the SNAP! Conference last Sunday night, there was a gorgeous flower arrangement waiting for me. Was it from Handsome Hubby because he was missing the gift that is my presence for 5 days...?
Nope! It was from the lovely people at FTD who have teamed up with Better Homes and Gardens to create a line of beautiful florals and green plants for the home.
Men. Non-Bloggers. Male Non-Bloggers...
Here are the photos he took for me.
|Beautiful (poorly lit) flowers... and keys, dishtowels, his watch, phones, pencils, receipts, |
paperwork, all sorts of everyday household counter-top clutter, and a pile of laundry. Nicely staged, dear!
I didn't think to tell him to "stage" the flowers, and to his credit, he realized there were several, um, distracting elements in his first photo... He did take another one....
|Much better photo composition! (We'll work on lighting and flash photography later...;)|
Now I very easily could have NOT shown you the photos that were taken the first day the flowers arrived and just used the ones I took 5 days later...
Does anyone notice anything here?
Perhaps that the flowers that were photographed on a Wednesday evening still look amazing on a Monday morning? I can't tell you how impressed that I am with the quality of these flowers.
