Yesterday, I visited a lovely formal garden in Dayton for the first time. I had lunch with a good friend and on the way home, decided to stop by the gardens as I had never been there before. After lunch, on a bright sunny day, is not the best time to shoot flowers but, I knew that when I decided to go.
Sometimes, I will scout out new locations, just to see what they offer as potential subjects or locations for shooting. Verdict? I will go back another time in the evening or early morning. Another consideration is the lateness of the season. Early August is not exactly known for its phenomenal displays of blooms.
