Photographed with film, this lovely white daisy has a wonderful romantic, soft quality to it. Romantic Daisy represents the beginning of my ongoing journey using film.
Capturing texture and the play of light and shadow are common themes in my work. This image captures the contrasting elements of softness and texture, and dark and light. Emphasizing the daisy's softness was the goal by using soft natural light, a macro lens, and playing with the angle of light on the flower. A hint of the petal's texture remains within the soft glow of light.
I took a hybrid approach in creating Romantic Daisy, supplementing the analog process with a small amount of digital developing to subtly lighten some midtones and shadows in the image to better balance the overall image.
Photographing flowers has been a passion of mine for years. Flowers have enticing opposing qualities of texture and softness that are a joy for me to photograph. Adding film to my process adds a nuance that I can't fully replicate digitally, and I'm excited to explore the possibilities that film can add to my art.
