I was told once that taking photos of flowers was not considered an art. So, to that audience I say, let me show you the artistry in florals.
It was a gloomy day when I did this shot. I figured that flowers don’t always need to be depicted as brightly colored pieces. The touch of green seen in the white petals give it some variation, as well as the distant red florals in the background. The way that each flower is fully open gives way to the definition for blooming.
You see every curve of each petal in this shot. I was aiming to showcase the beginnings of an early morning. At first there is a sense of lethargy. Then, as one eases into a sense of alertness, we become more ready to take on the day. The act of centering the flower, not only makes your eye focus on the details, but it also suggests a curvilinear shape.
This is the first shot that came out right after I adjusted everything in the manual settings. The colours and definition give it life.
The light on this particular tulip gives it a sense of allure. I think this is my favourite in this series.
