Tulip studies

May 21, 2010

I’ve been working on a new series of monochrome studies, this time focusing on the delicate structure of a single pink tulip.  Bringing out the tulip’s subtle texture needed very careful lighting, followed many hours of further work on the photographs to gradually coax out the fine lines and gentle curves.  The images were completed with a slightly warm tone.

Clicking on the image will open the series.

Many thanks again to the UK’s B+W Photography Magazine and The Imaging Warehouse, who chose my “Below Zero” series as one of three photographers’ work to be featured in the Readers’ Pictures section of the current edition, May 2010.  The series is printed across a two-page spread: Studies 1 to 4 on one page and the final image, “Below Zero, Study 5”, on its own full-page.

The photographs were taken in January 2010, during one of the UK’s longest coldest winters for many decades, with much of the county frozen for months.
