With love…
by Celia Strainge

These beautiful tulips were a gift from a friend as a thank you for cooking afternoon tea.

Taken on a very stormy afternoon with little light and therefore a tripod and a 5sec shutter speed! I like the almost painted quality that the photograph has gained through the long shutter speed and potentially questionable ISO setting!

Nikon D80
18-135mm lens

I’m a Props Supervisor for Opera and Theatre and have previously worked as a visual merchandiser, scenic artist, art director and prop maker. My love of photography is as strong as ever and I am slowly branching out into selling some of my better works for others to enjoy.

    So beautiful, it almost looks like you added texture in the back, but didn’t right?

  • You’re right, I didn’t… It was stormy outside so was quite dark. I used a fairly long shutter speed, which is probably why it looks a little grainy… that and the uneven plasterwork!!! : )
