Hello, I am Sarah.
My interest in movement within the frame to capture some kind of aura from the subject has grown and something I am wanting to explore more and more. I wanted to create an inclusion of movement from what would ultimately be an ordinary object to resemble impressionist / expressionist paintings. Giving off an aura of the object through movement rather than a flat dead pan portrait of the object. I set this up on a black back drop, using continual lighting, two soft boxes either side of the flower and one directional light on the front to show up more detail in the flower. There was a balance to gain enough detail so not to loose the form of the flowers yet create enough movement for the impressionist feel. I found the shutter speed to work best between 3 and 5 seconds, depending on how much I spun the flower. In photoshop I removed the stalk at the top and rounded it off. There is no other photoshop work, all the movement was captured in camera.
I worked on a series of these flowers in colour however a lot of my work is black and white, looking at focus, movement and time within the frame.
