Structure of Rose

Structure of Rose

Structure of Rose, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

As flowers go, roses tend to present interesting three-dimensional curvilinear spaces. Looking head-on at a rose is different in scale but otherwise similar to an aerial view of badlands or canyon country.

I picked both roses out at a local florist, and used bright, but overcast sunlight. There was a blind on the window so I could control the intensity of the light.

Both photos are examples of hand-HDR and flower photography—I combined multiple captures at different exposures using layers and masking in Photoshop to create each final image.

Some other images showing roses and their structure: Rose Spiral; Rose Studies; Burning White Rose; Red Rose Heart.

    First picture: a photo is really great when we can “navigate” through it for several minutes day by day.
