Skagit Valley Tulip Festival 2017

Spring means tulip season in the Pacific Northwest. I love the Laconner tulip fields because they’re a wonderfully complex subject to practice photography! The weather often presents a variety of rapidly shifting lighting conditions and it seems my UV filters really made the colors pop out more than I’d expected.

These photos were taken indoors under the controlled lighting of a display room. I was playing with shooting a technique to make the flowers appear soft, almost like an oil painting.
