Everyone needs a bunny sweater on Easter. Happy Easter!
It’s been cut, it’s been forced, it’s flowering…might as well get artsy with it. I shot this vase of forced Forsythia through a grey background using just the ambient light from a side window which allowed me to expose the window behind the background. Then, to give the background a brushed metallic look to complement the stool, in Photoshop I added a layer of Adobe Paper Texture Pro just over the grey background, masking out the flowers, vase and stool.
I had such great fun shooting this session with Miss Claire! All you need to do is hand this girl a prop and, well, just check out the images below.

I realize it’s a little early in the season to begin complaining about winter. However, waking up every morning to below freezing temps has already made me yearn for warm summer evenings like we had on this shoot, standing amid acres and acres of sunflowers, in southern Pennsylvania.
