Monochrome images of flowers
These photos are part of an ongoing study to explore the forms of plants. This post features a selection of black and white images of flowers produced in 2020 during lockdown. To produce the work, I used a macro lens with a minimal natural light source. Thus giving the imagery it’s soft luxurious look. This is also in part due to the lighting set-up which gave the low key effect. In addition, you’ll notice there’s also a sense of movement in the monochrome images of flowers in this collection. Which I find aesthetically pleasing.
More recently, I have become addicted to making botanical art. Specifically because it is calming, and a zen like practice. During the recording of the tiny delicate petals I get thoroughly lost in the beauty and intricacies of the subject matter. Often I do not know the scientific names of the flowers, and because they are often found specimens they’re not a pristine example. Therefore, it is always a challenge to match up with Google images.
Finally, if you enjoy the black and white photos is this post, I’d encourage you to check out some similar botanical studies in this journal entry.
