The flower experiment

The latest series of photos are based on flowers. Although they might not be readily recognized as such, there are definite flower parts.
I started out with a specific idea and technique that actually turned out quite well on a stand of trees. I turned that same technique on a single flower, added a few twists, with a result that I was rather happy about.
A few of the final images were not all that I had hoped they would be nor had the impact I was looking for. Those shortcomings made me tweek a few things, add another element or two to come closer to what I wanted to see on the screen.
Those I really liked I Printed on Kodak Endura metallic paper, which really makes them pop.
I’m still making some changes here and there and have some ideas about future elements that I want to add.

March means Green

We have just started the month of March so I have decided to concentrate my creative efforts on all things green.   March means green to me, for obvious reasons, I think.   After all March means springtime with new growth coming up out of the ground and budding on trees.  (See why I think of March as green?  Not to mention St Pat’s day- also very green).

Anyway green is the subject matter that will be given attention. After winter and it’s monochromatic color scheme, I feel I need to get some color into my shop.  Up to now it’s been mainly the snow and wheat colors that are so abundant in winter months.

I will be weeding thru my photo collection selecting those that represent this theme.
