Floral Still Life Techniques and Tips: Materials
Harvesting or Buying
I recommend buying floral material - cut flowers, foliage - from a local florist, versus a grocery store or other big-box type deal, for a few reasons. First, a florist has high turn-over of floral inventory, so you're probably going to get fresher stuff, which means it will be sturdier, will hold up better in the long-term, and will be a bit more forgiving to some of the extremes you're likely to be putting it through. Florists keep their cut flowers - when appropriate - in fridges with very specific temperatures and humidity that promote longevity. You'll be able to buy just a few individual stems of what you want to work with, and not have to buy a full bunch of long-stemmed roses or mixed cut flowers and greens just to get the one head you're going to be working with. Florists will be able to tell you (if they're ethical) when they got the specific flower in stock, and what sort of predicted shelf life it has once you get it home. They'll also

BetterPhotosAcademy… 4 month version of Photography Training is ON!!!
PhotoAxe stands strong  


Do you want to get published on a long-standing, high-ranking photography blog? Read below!

With some free time at hand, I am now trying to revive Photoaxe, meaning I want to post more articles. Quality, useful stuff. While I'm working on writing my own share of articles, I am also opening the gates for EVERYONE to share their articles on this website.
Basically, I'm looking for unique articles on the following categories:
    1. Photography Tutorials (shooting & photo manipulation)
    2. Photo Documentary (where have you been to and what great photos and thoughts you have about that place/situation)
    3. Biography (present your own photos and style, talk about how and why you choose to start photography, what you aim at - promote yourself!)

So far, I have InayatShah with 3 wonderful articles on Be the next one who gets published on this long-standing photography blog (alive since 2007). By the way, as of the date of this journal, Photoaxe has 300 visitors/day.

On another note, I (finally) created a facebook page for Photoaxe: . Come in, like it, share it! Spread the word.


Today is eternity. Time can be made on my behalf
Truth is always in the middle
Create your discipline: work mood comes working
Follow your heart, trust intuition
