These and the rest of my daisy posts this week are straight from the camera – no post processing edits aside from some minor cropping on a couple. I had fun playing around with shutter speeds to over- or under-expose the photos, using the natural bright light coming in from a large window to assist me in creating various effects with my camera that I would normally achieve with photo editing software.

I slowed down the shutter speed on the shots below which over-exposed the them, and since I was holding the camera and not using a tripod there was some camera shake which cause the blurring. I think it gives the photos an impressionistic, oil-painted look. What do you think?

All photos:
Exposure time 1/4-1/5s

Linking with Cee’s Flower of the Day.

This is for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Abstract. I had these dumped out every where on my counter, but it turns out they look much cooler sitting in the container they came in. I dialed up the highlights during post-processing to give it more of a vibrant, artsy feel.
