Five days in the life of an Amaryllis. I've always been fascinated with the Amaryllis and how quickly it comes into bloom, once it makes up its mind to do so. I swear I think the stem grows 2 inches every day when it begins.
I decided to make a photo project out of its life in bloom.
Every morning I took a photo pretty much at the same time of day. I also wanted to play with depth of field and focus-falloff for Be Still
Day 1 with Kim's "Whisper" preset
Day 2 with Kim's " On Air" preset
Day 3 with her "Organic" preset
Day 4 with "Moody-ish"
and Day 5 with Serendipitous (I really like this one.)
and a Lightroom 4-square offset
For those of you who are reluctant to attempt Lightroom, let me say that no one could be more intimidated than I, and I agree….it's a huge learning curve, but as Kim says….oh so worth it. I still have so much to learn and I forget along the way if I don't work with a particular technique. I just go back to Kim's class and refresh my memory.

You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.
