Charlotte, our next door neighbor, brought down some daffodils from her yard's flower beds yesterday, and they have stayed absolutely gorgeous! Spring is definitely here with flowers like this in bloom.
The shots were interesting, as I brought the whole vase up into the studio and dropped a black background behind it. I thought the vase and the way it held the flowers looked great, and so played around a bit with exposures and lighting, including the whole group. After a few of those, I got out the closeup lenses and tried a few more intimate images, in reference to Georgia O'Keeffe. The last was an unaltered shot.
I was born in Ellsworth and grew up in Winter Harbor, Maine and have lived here most of my life. I received my Bachelor's (1973) and Master's (2005) degrees from the University of Maine. I am a Maine boy through and through.
