“Creamy Comfort”

“Creamy Comfort”

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness” 
― Laura Ingalls Wilder

Back in the studio today, with a fresh bouquet. This time creamy roses, red carnations, spider dahlias, and lilies, which have not opened yet.

My first selection was the soft cream coloured roses, which have just began to open. As I positioned the blossoms under my lights I could not help but be captivated by the soft glow that seemed to come from within the bloom itself. The the title of this image. That warm radiance just spoke of comfort and softness. A tender bloom indeed.

I still have not tired of these studio images of flowers. Every image capturing a moment of beauty, often surprising me in its complexity and details, most of which I  don’t seem to notice until the blossom is lighted and isolated against the black background. This is something that I don’t believe I’ll ever stop enjoying. Right now, I’m a bit limited to whatever flowers are available in stores and I’m looking forward to capturing more images using this style as I begin to visit some botanical gardens in the upcoming weeks.
