With the help of 3 very lovely and talented dancers I was shooting our monthly assignment for Insidious Tomatoes – May Flowers. I decided to use a Lois Greenfield shoot that I have seen as inspiration; she used shredded paper, I used flower petals. At least it’s part of a flower. I am one for brevity.
As documented in my last post, I wanted a very bright set, with lots of light to catch the petals as they flew around. And, like the Dumbo ride at Disney, the cycle time for each shot was long: gather petals, throw into fan, jump, lather, rinse, repeat.
Although we did not take as many frames as usual, we did come away with many shots, a representative 3 below:
Although I am equally fond of all of them, I’m not sure what the select will be (a consequence of a successful shoot). I’m leaning to the first, or another not pictured here, although the second here (as well as yet another not pictured) is strong, also. Decisions, decisions.
