I have some volunteer thistles growing on the side of my house. When they started to bloom I cut some of them and photographed them on my lightbox.
I photographed this rose from different angles and then I created this collage. Enjoy!
Before the current rain we had a pretty frosty night in Central California. I went out for a walk early in the morning and photographed this dandelion in the park around my house. Enjoy!
This is a double mirrored image of some succulents that are growing in the front yard in my neighborhood. Enjoy!
Nine exposures of a vase of carnations. Camera is mounted on a tripod and in manual mode. Before each exposure I turned the vase a few degrees. In post I edited the images in layers. Enjoy!
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.
I listened to a photographic presentation where the photographer talked about colors and how they influence the viewer. He mentioned that the colors red is very dominant and just a little red in an image makes a significant impact.
I decided to photograph a small red rose in my yard. I waited after sunset and then I used my fiber optic lamp to create this blue background. I wanted blue as a cold color in contrast to the warm red color of the rose.
I used a lightbox to photograph these flowers. Enjoy!
I photographed Oleander blossoms. In post production I converted the RGB image into LAB. In the LAB mode I inverted the L channel to get this image.
Enjoy these roses that I cut in my backyard and photographed!
