Nature and Presence of People Assignment

1. I took all the pictures in the backyard of a friend’s house in Avon. And I use the Macro setting with all of them because I really wanted the plants to stand out.

2. I feel like the first one is the most successful shot. I really like the way the purple flower looks really bright thanks to the flash and it stands out from the ones in the back.

3. If I could change something about one of the pictures, I would change the third one. I would change the exposure setting just so the background wouldn’t look as dark as it does.
