High-Key Macro Florals, & “Frans Lanting”, A Must See Site!

© 2006 – Michael Brown
* Copying/downloading of images is prohibited.
I have always enjoyed capturing some interesting and appealing high-key florals with contrasting rich colors and something different as far as its composition.
With the various compositions, seems as if I am always drawn to a composition with some of the petals that flow vertically, something that allows the eyes to enter somewhere from the top and to slowly move down, taking it all in, and allows me to study it as I move along.
This image here allows just that, with a interesting shape, lines, subtle textures, rich contrasting colors, … oh well, … I like it!

Now everyone, ….. listen up!

If there ever was a time where you need to turn off the televisioin, turn off the stereo, put the dog outside, gag your spouse or other half and throw them in the closet, … then do it now!
You need some peace and quite to view this absolutely unbelievable imagery from Frans Lanting.
I do not need to say anything else. His work truly speaks for itself.
Sit back and enjoy this!!!

  1. Just discovered your site the other day and have enjoyed looking back and reading. I love your work.

    I am very happy to see a 30+ year old making it in photography. Maybe I shouldn’t give up on that dream yet!

  2. Beautiful Mike!

    I saw his link over at NSN, I didn’t need to do what you said, I drifted off in to my own world while looking at his photo’s!

  4. Great to see that you’re still creating wonderful inspiring images (haven’t been around for a while). Love the painted effect on the petals. The Lanting site is amazing! Thanks for providing the link.

  7. Your photos are evocative. I love them. Can’t wait to set aside time to explore the entire site.

    Thanks for the link to the Lanting “Life” site. It’s well worth the visit. That’s another thing I am appreciating about this blog–you link to some wonderful photo sites I might not have found otherwise.

  8. Thanks for the link to the Lanting site. I’ve seen the book lying around at the local bookstore and will probably end up buying it after seeing this display. That said, I’m still mightily impressed by your work. Have just looked through the last month’s posts (for some reason I haven’t been by for a while) and only wish you would post them a little bigger :-) This shot is one among many cracking pictures!
