"Floral Double Exposures"


Milwaukee, US
          

During the winter I experiment with flowers doing all sorts of things. Some good, some not so good, and some yet to be determined. Here are three images that are a little over the top and yet I like them. There is nothing like experimentation when dealing with flowers. At some risk, I ask what do you think?

#1. Roses in Motion -- Taken with Nikon D600, Nikkor 28-300mm at 300mm, ISO 25600, -0.7EV, 2sec, f/36, Shutter Priority, Auto WB, Flash, Breaking all the rules, moving the camera during a single exposure to suggest a double exposure, noise reduction and softening with other enhancements in Lightroom 4.3.



#2. Luminous Sepia Rose -- Same data above however with use of one of my many Lightroom presets and some cropping.



#3. Roses in Double Exposure -- Taken with Nikon D600, Nikkor 28-300mm at 300mm, ISO 25600, Shutter Priority, -0.7EV, Flash, f/36, 1sec, Auto WB, moving the cameras during two frame multiple exposure, and used Lightroom 4.3 for softening, noise reduction, etc.

I really like number 1. Moody and dreamy with luscious colors.

I like the concept. hmmm, I seem to search for something sharp;. This my just be a carrry-over obsession from wildlife and sports. It might not be necessary here. Then again, the images might indeed have a sharp section and I am not finding it due to the other factors

It is about an artistic intent and looking at new ways in seeing. I don't pretend to have mastery of artistry options, but it is interesting to do soft sometimes with flowers. Take a look at what Tony Sweet (a Nikon camera user) or Kathleen Clemons does with flowers. Their websites are full of quite interesting approaches. In fact Tony introduces double exposure and motion onto his images quite often for special effect and pushing the boundaries (1) www.tonysweet.com and (2) www.kathleenclemonsphotography.com. It opens us up to new ways of seeing. So I am experimenting.

Not at all, Bob. I think you are just searching to determine if it works for you. I often see images that don't work at first and then later on, I get the "oh, not so bad" and then other times, "that doesn't work at all." I think it is great to experiment and occasionally someone challenges that, likes it or doesn't like or are ambivalent. I appreciate the dialogue.
