Working With Flowers

I decided that it was time to do another shoot with some flowers. I headed to the store to try and find some unique looking flowers that would be fun to photograph. After finding some that I thought would be good subjects, it was time to head back and set up a small studio space to photograph the flowers. Working in small spaces can be a challenge some times, but I think the final results from this shoot turned out nice, even with the small work area. 

The flower that I thought was the most interesting was a red, yellow, and orange rose. The veins on the outer petals really stood out to me and made for an interesting look. One technique used while shooting flower is to spray them with a little water to make the shot more interesting. In the images below you will be able to see an example of the flower with and without the added water.

In addition to roses there was a variety of other flowers including daisies and Dahlias. One of the fun things to try with flowers is layering the different colors and styles to create an overall image. By interchanging different varieties the images can have very different feels. Here are some examples of different combinations of flowers and colors. 

These are just a few examples of the different types of photo from this shoot. I enjoy working with flowers as a subject because no two are identical and I can create interesting images with them.
