Great, I'll make some tea and biscuits :D Seriously, not too hard, I have a magnolia wall, the afternoon sun was filtered through white blinds, coming from the left side. It took a few different shots (50 mm lens, f1.8), this one was the best, and then I enhanced the contrast in post processing. Sharpened the front orchids a little bit. That's it :) :heart:

It's just that I've been doing it for a long time, so it's become automatic. And really, with taking the photo, it's just trial and error, whatever works! Ok, I have some German organic lemon balm tea, I'll put the kettle on :D

Hey Anna! Thank you so much. It's just an occasional burst of photography here and there, but I'm not giving it up. I hope you are well :) :heart:

Sorry to take time replying.  I'm okay, but have a left frozen shoulder which makes typing extremely painful and awkward.  Cortisone injection has not worked so far, but it is worse! :(

You?

So sorry to hear that :( I hope something can be done to relieve it. I have these attached to my desk www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0… One for each elbow. It's made typing and working so much more comfortable, not just for elbows and shoulders but also the neck.

I'm good. It's been windy here for a few days so had some asthma, but otherwise getting better all the time. Feeling loads better than a year or two ago. :)
