After much deliberation I decided to use flowers as the subject for my fifth assignment.
After reading the assignment brief I thought about how images can be taken out of context and how certain types of images need time to be absorbed and thought about. Then I remembered the Indian fable about the blind men and an elephant. I decided I wanted to do a series of images that were not obvious but if you looked closely you could decide what it was that you where seeing.
The piece of art work I recently bought for my study gave me inspiration.
After taking images of the fireworks on the Palm I thought how different a flower could be. This image makes me think of the flower Chrysanthemum
I researched what type of flowers are best for creative floral photography
Nobuyoshi Araki – is it porn or Art?
Qi Wei Fong- seen these images when I googled creative uses of flowers
Agniers Katrzoch – I found some of her images of dead flowers on instagram and started following her. They are very different and I like them.
