The Lowly Dandelion
When you are looking for something interesting to photograph, don't overlook the simplest of subjects. This common dandelion was turned into an interesting image with just a few easy steps in Photoshop.
You can read about the technique at this link https://awakethelight.blogspot.com/2017/03/just-for-fun.html?fbclid=IwAR0sdpDiUh606OPfN0o8RJKBA5SDcpieo87rEi__6CbAdMBjUbstgYZDUDc
Dandelions actually make very interesting subjects if you take the time to get close and look at all the repeating shapes and textures. In fact many simple things which might not seem appealing take on new life when you take the time to examine them closely.
So stretch yourself. Go in search of simple, everyday things and think about what you can do to make them more interesting.
