because of the whole decorating the flat this weekend your going to have to see more pictures of the work, I would love to show a picture from the streets of East London but thats not going to happen.
In the flat theres this big window ledge that sticks out like a foot by 6ft long, my plan is to cover the whole thing in plants, I want to have a mini rainforest! so every chance I get i’m buy more and more plants, im not sure if its becoming some sort of un health obsession, but plants actually make a flat better.
I have no idea about plants, I just like green ones, about 5 months ago I started a Catcus farm but that seems to be slow work, nothing has really grown. So I don’t think that is going to take off any time soon. Im not giving up on the whole little mexico cactus farm in my flat, just need some other plants so I can work on the rain forest, does anyone know what are the best plants that grow indoors? any tips would be welcome.
Anyway I came back last night and was talking to amy and she said that I should try and take some flat lay photos, Ive never tried it before and its actually pretty good, my idea was to take a flat lay and then see if I could take different angles of the same subjects and see what turns out better. this was this vinyl record in the corner of the shot thats got this girl on it, I really wanted to concentrate on her, sometimes have her in focus, some times not. The thing I enjoy about shooting faces and people, it gives the person looking at the photo something to think about, try and guess there emotion of mood. Im not sure if you get that from a illustrated cartoon on the front of a Whipped Cream and other Delights vinyl but its still adds something to these photos.
Theres definitely room for improvement, I want to try flat lay photos with other objects that are more flat instead of plants. Basically plants aren’t flat, so it makes it hard to get the correct focus point, in a way though that has added something extra to these photos as a one time thing, now I’ve done this style though I really do want to try it with complete flat objects and see what the results are like.
Its quite I good Idea for my blog, on a day that not much is happening, I could take a couple photos of some flat lay’s and still manage to keep this interesting.
Anyways heres my snaps from last night.

I love that last photo too! I see you’ve already got a dracaena plant. I love their narrow shiny leaves and their stripy stems. I had one which grew enormous quite quickly – they are easy to look after and there are lots of different types. http://www.dracaena.com/ Parlour palms are good too http://www.ourhouseplants.com/plants/parlour-palm A hibiscus has large bright flowers but it does need a lot of sunlight and also the soil has to be kept damp all the time. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=841 I like marantas as the leaves have fantastic patterns on them.
Thank you so much clare! I have no idea about the plants in my flat apart from the coconut tree! thanks for all of those links im going to do my researcher and build a rain forest, I think its a must for my flat! hope you are ok!
