I love flowers, flowers and puppies are two of my favorite things in the world. Strangely enough though there are is an amazing variety of trees and plants that grow naturally here in Tampa, you don't see as many beautiful flowers around. One of my assignments for my commercial photography class was to come up with a photograph that goes with the term 'sensual'. I bought a dozen beautiful white roses and was originally going to photograph them together with some Godiva truffles and red satin. However I just was not happy with the way those photos were turning out.
I started to think just photographing a rose itself would work and the closer I got with my macro lens the better the photos until I struck gold. I found something, haunting and sensual about the swirling of the petals. It also makes me think of white chocolate being swirled around. Ended up with some of my favorite photos ever. These have inspired me to want to do a series of macro flower shots I will begin working on soon.
Hope to be able to post some shots from the shoot I did in Ybor City yesterday tomorrow or Monday.
