Dancing Flowers – 2
This is another of my Dancing Flowers series that I was experimenting with (see the original post here http://katiescamerablog.wordpress.com/2011/09/19/dancing-flowers/. I had bought a small bunch of daffodils at Trader Joes, and I put them into a drinking glass and began to shoot. I started by taking some stock type photos on black backgrounds. I thought those photos were very pretty and striking, but I wanted more.
I then tried more creative angles. At one point, I tried the twisting camera technique, and I got this shot. I think this is interesting; I like the juxtaposition between the straight stems and the flowers which are making a circular pattern. The photo makes me thing of spring, and the renewal of life, and the burst of energy and growth that happens at that time of year; maybe a spring dance.
Looking at the photo now, I do think maybe that I should have put a white cloth on the table, so the photo would have been about the flowers, and the motion, and not had that contrasting color of the table. Or perhaps, the brown of the wood table could represent the soil of the Earth?
What do you think? (click the photo to enlarge )
