The Potting Bench – part 3 – I just can’t stop grabbing the camera while I’m potting plants and doing some faffing with various props. If you wish to catch up on my Potting Bench Series, you can find Part 1 HERE and Part 2 HERE.
I wasn’t sure if I’d get a photo in today or not. I had to get my hair cut and do some shopping but went right to work potting plants when I got home. I didn’t beat the bright sunshine but waited on a cloud…..to avoid blowouts.
I used my 18-105mm kit lens at an aperture of 5.6 and ISO of 200. Just one image today……it looked like rain and I wanted to pot some more of my plants before that happened.
I used Kim’s “earthy” preset on this image with a slight adjustment to the saturation.
FYI – I spotted the Royal Crown bottle as I was heading out with the camera. It doesn’t really have cola in it but I figured I could use some water and food coloring to make it look that way. I put about 1/2 cup of water in the bottle, added 4 drops of red food coloring and 2 drops of green. Then I added more water. PERFECT!
I had pruned some of the dead limbs off the trumpet vine that were covered with morning glory vines from last summer. As you can see, I can’t even throw THOSE away! Well……I will now but it came to me to use them in this image.
The green basket has been in the sunshine too long and the paint is peeling from it, so I decided to plant a couple verbena in it and tied a strip of burlap around the handle.
Then came the old scoop and the rusty tool that is used for removing dandelion roots…….and what’s left of my 6 pack of verbenas.
So so much fun!!
I hope you’re enjoying this Series as much as I am. Who knows what will come next in The Studio | Online!
