  1. Hi Olivia,
    The photos you have taken look so professional. I am surprised your photos aren’t in a magazine. I have no idea how you can make them so perfect. My favourite photos are the first ones. What type of flowers are they?


    1. Hi Rach,
      Thank you so much! I really appreciate the encouragement! I really do think that it is the camera, its features and my passion for photography! Yes, I agree, the first ones are beautiful! I’m not really sure what type they are! I think the purple ones are waratahs… some are roses and others are daisies. I’m not sure about the first ones!


  2. Hi Olivia,
    I think that your passion project idea is wonderful and your photos look amazing. I can’t wait to see how you present your passion project


  3. I love how you explained your experimenting process, Olivia. I’m new to this whole SLR game and your thoughts gave me a few things to think about. Taking close-ups is not my strong but. But you have done that so beautifully. Very interesting underexposed shots – they create a moody feel…sort of like the flowers are drooping or are sad 😀 Amazing work.


    1. Thank you! I really appreciate your comments! Yes, until recently, I hadn’t even held an SLR camera before! But know I have learnt how to do many things! I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it! 🙂 I do love the underexposed shots as well! I agree, they do create a sort of sad, blue mood! Thanks so much 🙂

  4. Hi Olivia,
    I think that your photos are amazing. Have you chosen how you are going to present this? Are you using a book to document all your photos. Great job on the photos! Enjoy your project!


  5. Hi Olivia,
    I love how you took photos of flowers and made them lighter and darker. I can’t wait to see your final product. Great job with the photos.
    Have Fun!


  6. Hi Olivia!
    I love, love, loved your photographs! They looked so professional! – apart from the one witch was quite dark! I look forward to reading your next posts and seeing how you go with the IOS lenses. Have you thought about how you are going to present it?
    Have a good afternoon!


    1. Hi Elspeth,
      I love, love, love you comment! It is so lovely! Thank you so much, I do agree with you, the dark ones are underexposed and are classified as ‘mistakes’ and experiments. I look forward to posting! And this coming post, I will be posting about how I will present, so keep posted!
      You too!
      Olivia 🙂


  7. Hi Olivia!
    I love your blog! I’m amazed by the layout and the features down the side of the page!
    Anyways about the actual post…
    I loved that although we’re all quite far into our projects that you’re still finding out interesting facts and strategies and still inquiring and trying to dig for more information on how to take your photos.
    Can I just suggest that with the photos that you lay them out a little better labelling wise. I loved the way that they were all clumped together, but you put the information before the photos so I had no idea what you were talking about until I had seen the actual photos.
    Loving it Liv!


    1. Hi Emily,
      Thank you so much! I did spend hours customising my blog theme! Yes, I agree that it is very important to gather as much information as I can even at the last stage of the passion project! I am so interested in all the different techniques, skills and aspects of photography, that I have been constantly researching on these subjects! Thanks for you suggestion, I will certainly be thinking about how I structure my post next time!
      Liv 🙂


  8. Hi Olivia,
    Not only have I been admiring the developments you have made with your camera, but yes, I did ‘get’ your focus and perspective jokes – which certainly made me laugh.
    I am delighted you have found the website I recommended useful. The idea of presenting your beautiful poetry with these stunning photos is a great idea.
    I wonder….have you thought about using any photos with ‘incorrect’ shutter speed, aperture or lighting and writing a poem relating to it? Or writing a poem describing your difficulties, frustrations , moods or learning journey you have travelled (in a poem) and matching these with a selection of photos?
    Just a few thoughts to enhance your finished product….
    Keep ‘writing on a whim’ – Fabulous work 🙂


    1. Hi Mrs W,
      Thank you so much for your comment! I’m so glad you got my jokes… no matter how bad they are! Yes SnapFish has proved helpful! However, as you know I have had a few issues with the amount of photos I have taken! Maybe I’ve been a bit too enthusiastic for SnapFish’s liking! Hmm… the idea of writing poetry about an ‘incorrect’ or undesirable aspect of photography would certainly be very interesting, as well as posting poems about my journey! I will certainly try this. Thank you so much!
      Olivia 🙂
