Through My Lens : Ranunculus

March 25, 2015
Flower Photography

Besides my dolls, Rena and Ian, flowers are one of my favorite subjects in my personal photography work.  For my floral studies, I like to get up close and treat them almost as if they're abstract objects. The delicate petals fascinate me the most as their arrangement and movement are like visual poetry.  My latest series is a study of ranunculus. I've always thought they were really pretty but this is my first time photographing them and I feel as if I'm seeing their beauty in a new light. I think I may be adding a few of these to my Etsy print shop.

What's your favorite flower? Mine would be peonies.

  8. Gorgeous. I, too, adore flowers and taking pictures of flowers. I've been trying to shoot poppies for a few weeks now (buying new little bunches when ever I have a few euros) but so far I haven't been able to capture their delicacy....

  11. you created magic on these photographs...I especially love the last one, perhaps because of the way the texture of the pedals catches the eye.

    I think I know what you say when you say that you see flowers in a new light now...that is what I love about painting. After I have painted something, I never see it quite the same way.

    It is one of the blessings art has installed for us...and it better have some, because it can be so energy draining;) I sometimes joke that art is like those french courtesans from 20 century novels...no matter how much you give, always asking for more...

    you know what I mean?

  16. So beautiful, Rowena! I adore your photos.
    Peonies are the ones that featured in beauty shots most often. They are never overwhelming and just make everything around them look pretty.

  18. Those are amazing shots! Flowers are one of my favorite subjects too, since they don't move like my dogs do!

    My favorite flowers are tulips, but we don't have the weather for them here in Florida. My boyfriend got me a tulip plant for Valentine's day, and each day a new bloom would open. It was amazing to watch it's progress. And then the heat killed it T_T

    We are going to try roses again next. I had a sort called Angel's something or other, I can't remember, but they had an amazing smell and they were tinier and pink. He chose Climbing Don Juan, which is a beautiful plant if the damn thing would ever grow. I'm wondering if we just have bad soil. My hibiscus are growing great, just not blooming. The funny thing is I bought three different hibiscus plants for $10, then kept two and gave one to my boyfriend's dad. Ours look pathetic, but his blooms all the time. He's got such a green thumb!

  21. Rowena, I love flowers and it's difficult to just pick one. I love lillies, tulips, roses, orchids, and many more. I can just imagine their sweet scent now! I love your shots, you have great talent. Thanks for sharing.

  36. These photos are STUNNING! I love how minimalistic they are so that the focus is really on the form of the flower! My favorite flower in all its simplicity is the sunflower :)

  37. I love flowers as well! The ranunculus are definitely one I love to pick up. I think my absolute favorite are peonies as well but lately I have been loving poppies. I also bought some poppy seeds to plant some! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, the ranunculus pictures is stunning! I adore peonies as well and they're up there with tulips (though so different since tulips are so simple!)

  42. These are so pretty! You do such an incredible job of photographing flowers. My favorite flower would probably have to be a rose. I think Beauty and the Beast inspired my love for it.

  43. The flowers are breathtakingly beautiful. Nice shots.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Omg, these are stunning photos Rowena! Me too, I'm beginning to appreciate peonies, but definitely my favourite flowers are white roses. Actually, I love calla lily too (I guess any type of white flowers). I'm going to check out your Etsy shop now.

  48. As much as I love peonies, they sound like a pain in the arse to grow (plant bulbs, wait next year for them to bloom; and the whole ants situation). I've already started working on my indoor garden, as I planted some seeds a few weeks back and they're already started sprouting!! (EXCITING TIMES) And I've also bought some gorgeous potted mums and hydrangeas, AND I'M JUST VERY CONTENT WITH MY LIFE AT THE MOMENT.

    I've never heard of Ranuculus prior to this post, but after some image Googling, I think I might be in love!
