Today I have the wonderful pleasure of welcoming Lucy from Capture by Lucy to Makelight for a special guest post. While I am busy working in Portland, Oregon Lucy is here to share her love of capturing flowers for Instagram.
Painting Instagram with Flowers
I have been a long term fan of Emily’s blog and love getting lost in her dreamy floral photography. When we had the chance to sit down together and properly chat at Blogtacular I realised we have a special connection. A love of using flowers and creative composition for simply no other reason than because it makes you feel happy.
There is nothing I like more than playing with flowers. Fresh flowers in the house is my luxury item and I’m more than happy to forgo a gym membership for a free run around the village to keep me in pretty blooms every month!
When we sit down to eat as a family the table is laid, with flowers and plants as our centrepiece. Sometimes a few stems from the garden or the children’s tomato plant takes centre stage and other times the table is bursting with flowers after a party or occasion. And even the plainest, routine family dinner feels more special.
I love the #floralfridaycompetition community that Emily has founded and every week I join in, I find more intriguing and like minded people to follow and engage with. Beautiful galleries from creative romantics that brightens even the greyest wet day.
I often say that florals are a great way to practise your creative photography. The possibilities are endless. You can capture something formal, something whimsical and each photo is unique.
