Simply Resplendent

Bold, beautiful, warm and tender, reaching out and up, searching for that which will nourish and complete its existence.

I love to capture the colors, textures, patterns of flowers of all sorts, even those deemed as ‘weeds’. I don’t care what it’s purpose is or if it ‘should’ be there, I love to capture them when and where I see them.

This is one my wife grew in the yard.  She had cut some and brought them into the house to brighten it up a bit. I though it was a good chance to borrow one and bring it into the studio so that I could capture its beauty without the distraction of background/foreground, to be held in high, on display and appreciated in full without distraction.

I usually use two lights for flowers in the studio, one hard light coming from the side or slightly behind with the other very soft, filling in the shadows,  is just off to one side of me. I usually take between fifty and one hundred photographs, moving lights, changing settings and just ‘playing’ with it until I think “WOW, that’s cool” and what ever else I do, it doesn’t get better.

It’s actually much safer shooting in the studio, you see, we have a garden shark.
