Photography has the power to reflect the situation we are living in. Currently COVID 19 is determining our lives in many ways. One key factor is isolation in order to prevent spreading the virus. Let’s not forget that isolation can lead to loneliness and depression.
Stay healthy and reach out to a person In isolation. That is the message of this image!


I photographed a Rose from my yard several times. First I created a “low key stack” of the Rose on the left hand side. Combined several exposures in layers and masking techniques I creates a beautiful backlit image on a black background. Then I created a group of different images. I moved the rose during the exposure to create a motion blur. I picked a blurred image and used it as part of my background. The sharp and blurred rose give the image an interesting contrast.
