“I enjoy the spring more than the autumn now. One does, I think, as one gets older.”
― Virginia Woolf
One of the benefits of photographing nature in the Carolinas is that there are four distinct seasons in which to photograph. Of the four seasons, spring is one of my favorites. There are endless, colorful subjects to photograph in springtime.
I find myself finding my subjects in a variety of locations. I find subjects in
gardens, greenhouses, and in neighborhoods. The featured image, above, was taken at an abandoned school. I found out about this location when someone posted an image and directions to the location on Facebook in case others wanted to photograph it, as well. I absolutely love wisteria, so I felt I needed to travel the hour in order to see this spectacular display. Fortunately, my husband and son were willing to join me on this trek.
Locally, I also was able to find a wonderful show of wisteria just outside of the public library.
Gardens are fantastic places to photograph in spring. The two images just below were created in gardens.
When I think of springtime, I think of dogwoods. I was thrilled to find a background of pink azaleas when photographing the dogwoods.My dog, Maui, also loves springtime. I find that she is a wonderful model.
I often use Topaz Impression when processing my spring images. This wonderful plugin just adds so much to some spring scenes.
I love to get in close to my subjects in spring. Flowers are such amazing subjects to get close and personal with while photographing. These images were taken in a greenhouse this spring.
Whether you find your subjects in gardens, greenhouses, neighborhoods, or around town, enjoy the beauty and create your images to share to show what spring looks like where you live and travel.
Spring is a wonderful time of renewal. Go outside and enjoy the beauty of spring!
