The final image of this series. I admit to enjoying flower photography for several reasons. Not least among the reasons I enjoy flower photography is that I am able to slow down and really look at the subject. Considering different angles, allowing the shapes of the flower’s structure to inform my decisions is almost meditative.
The second of three images featuring the humble tulip. As you can tell from this post and the previous one it’s all about detail and intimate consideration of the subject.
Flowers. It always seems to come back to the place flowers hold in our collective artistic subconscious. It is a well-deserved place of course; the flower is a triumph of nature. Flowers can be beautiful, fragrant, or unsettling (consider Amorphophallus titanum, commonly called the corpse flower). Photographically they may be a trope, but therein lies the challenge.
One more image as cherry blossoms never get old (for me anyway).
