Sometimes I just can't get an image out of my mind until I've had a go at it myself. In this case, I was inspired by more than one image. Recently two of my photo buddies have featured images of daisies that were so well done that the shots have been stuck in my head.
The first source if inspiration came from Susan Downing in the form of a daisy shot from a really unusual angle. You can see her inspiring daisy here on flickr.
The second source of inspiration came from Wendy Erlendson. You can find her wonderful daisy image here on flickr.
Combined these two images placed daisies solidly into my head and I couldn't get them out. Luckily, we have some daisies in our flower beds and I didn't have to go far to find my subject. Like Susan, I wanted to do something unusual and I decided to try and blow out a flower that was already white. Even more I wanted to do it in camera, without any post processing.
This image is the result. What do you think about the image? Does it do anything for you? Did the experiment result in anything worth keeping or is this just another blown out image? Let me know what you think.
