White Gardenia 2021©Isadora DeLaVega

Photograph taken at my former home. I had a beautiful gardenia bush in my garden. I loved the perfume scent coming through my window in the Spring. It’s the one item I wish I could have taken with me. Sadly, I’ve planted several in my new residence only to have them wilt away. The photo above is the original.

When I edited this photograph, I noticed the raindrops were much more visible.

The bright white color in the photograph above showcases the beauty of a gardenia flower.

I don’t use sepia too often. In this photo I played around with the background more.

Playing with the different effects, I found this opalescent effect.
It shows the veins on the leaves but changes the white I love in the gardenia.

  1. These are great examples of how the mood of a photo can be so different using different techniques. The flower is gorgeous. Of these, my favorite is the black background which really emphasizes the purity and beauty of the flower. Thanks for sharing your approaches Izzy, very creative!
