Deconstructed Flower – 5

After Julz and I finished painting the red rose, we decided to deconstruct it 🙂

Here it is earlier in the day. I had it on a white tablecloth near a window, with a white sheer curtain behind it. I love the light.

Here’s a reminder of the light painting – you can see the full post here.

And then we got out the knife, heheheheheh….

One final shot to share with you. You know I love to play with my editing. I took the rose and converted it to black and white and blew it out in terms of exposure. Lots of manoeuvres to bring back the details, but I really like the final effect. I think it would make really pretty notepaper if I soften it a little more. What do you think?

  1. always amazes me, you sit in the same area with me and get totally different shots…..love it! I really like the last image too, totally see it as note paper. Also if you turned it into like a pencil drawing effect as well, would be super cool and pretty. I love the super detailed stamen area as well, WOW, love that macro lens!

  3. You’re becoming a serial murderer! But oh, the results! And after all you’re a scientist, doing what scientists do – mindful dissection. Digital notepaper? Or 3D? Either way, that rose would invite gentle thoughts.

      Thanks Meg. I’m thinking printable notepaper! Exactly, mindful dissection. That would have been a much more poetic name than deconstruction.

    I truly like the B&W shot…but that first large color one is a real winner! I vote for notepaper
