Portraits Botanical

I have always been fascinated by the diversity in form, color, and structure of plants and flowers, the different stages in the yearly cycle of a plant bring its own designs that are unique to each plant and flower.  Realizing every flower and plant is unique, I began photographing flowers and plants from around my neighborhood for an ongoing collection I titled “Portraits Botanical”.  Using portrait lighting techniques, I attempt to bring out the individual uniqueness in each of my “subjects”.
