I’m trying out something a little bit different to my usual ‘(insert season here) in the garden’ blog post today… autumn – in the garden, in the dark! Last month I wanted to take a quick photo in the garden when it was dark and decided to use my selfie light, then I thought why not see what a flower comes out like? And loved the result (if you want to see that one it’s on my Instagram) so when I had to go outside for something this evening as it was getting dark I thought I’d try and get a few more photos with my selfie light – this is the result.
It is October and our antirrhinums are still flowering! These are the yellow ones by the backdoor. We’ve also got a whole massive antirrhinum plant down the side that seeded itself.
Pretty pink roses!
One of my favourite photos from this evening, love this flower.
This one doesn’t even look like it’s that dark, how cool are the variegated leaves though?
Check out my Autumn In The Garden blog post from last year.
Just to note – I only take photos of flowers like this, I wouldn’t use the selfie light to photograph wildlife because while the light isn’t overly bright I wouldn’t want to startle them!
I’m really pleased with how these turned out, have you ever done any photography in the garden in the dark like this before? I’ve also been thinking of getting some clip on lenses for my phone – if you’ve got any recommendations, please do leave them in the comments.
