I wait for the poppies all year.  They are in my yard and they are along the road where I walk.  poppies-3036

I keep an eye out for them and when they start, it is an early morning, dressed and out the door before 6:30 so I can capture them down the road.  Morning light is best down there because of the angle of the sun.

Shooting poppies is hard – the color blows out so easily.  So it takes a bit of work in post to bring them to where I want.  bozeman senior photo-3012bozeman senior photo-3010

Poppies lend themself well to artistic interpretation in lightroom,bozeman senior photo-3027

but today I was inclined towards as clean as the lighting conditions would allow.
