Regular Random – Five minutes with a Posy Jar

I picked up this stunning Posy Jar from a florist (Art Stems on Lygon) near me and spent a very long time photographing it inside my pop up studio.

For this weeks #RegularRandom I chose a 5 minute window of shots for this post.

If you’d like to join in, here’s what we do:

  • choose an object or scene
  • spend just 5 minutes shooting it, trying to be creative with angles and light and composition
  • post your photos with the tag regularrandom
  • pingback to this post so that we can see your results!

I feel slightly cheated because I have 16 photos that I exported from this shoot and there are better ones outside of the 5 minute window (shots above were taken between 4 and 9 minutes).

So, here is the first shot that I took of the whole posy, just to put it into perspective:

Roses&Tulips-79

And here is my favourite shot, taken one minute after the window of 5 minutes LOL. I’ve given it my overexposed treatment that I really enjoy.

Roses&Tulips-8

Looking forward to seeing your #regularrandom shots this week!

Happy snapping,

x desleyjane

    I really like that last shot–like it’s peeking around the corner for one last look. Great photos, Desley.

  3. You really take the 5 minutes almost seriously, although you do sin!thank goodness. Total righteousness is a pain – and we’d miss out. I love the DJ treatment. All that delicacy and delicious negative space.

        I recognised the protea and is that a mimosa?

          Jude, I’m useless sorry. She said the word Rubenza to me???? There’s a little purple orchid in there as well. And those cute little pink balls.
