Lessons from Photoshop About Personality : 2 Sides of the Zinnia

I shot this zinnia in color and converted it to black and white because it was less expected. By subduing the color, you notice the flower.Lesson learned: I don’t have to be the most colorful to stand out. Showing my structure and form helps differentiate me. I couldn’t stop there. I played around with inversions – showing the total opposite and that made for a strong photo also. Second lesson: sometimes doing the opposite of  what people expect from you, or what is most natural to you, creates a new vision.I never realized that I could learn so much from Photoshop!
