The Master Plan that Started it All [Fine Art Flower Photography]
Like many of my projects, this one stemmed from my desire to redo some portion of my home. I'm a bit obsessed with home decor and feel like I will never truly be "finished" with this house. Over the past year I've slowly made updates to our master bedroom to make it more colorful (surprise, surprise) and a little more peaceful. One of the final elements it needed was new artwork. I've had some classic black and white photography on the walls and I was ready to brighten up the art along with my throw pillows. :)
Like the rest of the walls in my house I first turned to the onset of fine art photography I have in my current collection. But nothing was speaking to me. I knew I wanted plant life but wanted something a little more modern and simple. Enter $20 of flowers and a macro lens. Once I got going there was no turning back. I even kept going and added some agate stones for my dining room walls. I'm thinking I'll probably print some of these as squares, canvases or framed prints. Give me another 2 weeks and I'll probably have them hung and ready for display/instagram. Until then, here they are, the final few that made the cut. Let me know if you have any favorites I can add to the Etsy shop.
Also, I totally just grabbed a bunch of stems from the grocery and inspected them more upon arriving home. I geeked out when I noticed that the one stem of ranunculus I grabbed had 3 buds, one in each stage of growth. I mean, that’s the perfect scenario for someone who has no patience or time to keep a bud alive in hopes of capturing it’s unique growth pattern. #winning
