"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

“Adagio” Series – Black & Gold Version

I know that I have been a bit slack lately with some new “how to do it in macro” type posts, and hopefully I will come up with something soon, … after I catch up on a few other things.

A designer that I work with recently acquired some images from the “Adagio” Series for two floors within a large office building.
But, … the client wanted something different for the other two floors.
So, … I mentioned to the designer that if they really liked the overall style of the “Adagio” Series, would they consider staying with that style but in a different color? The client was puzzled at what I was talking about.
So, … a little time with Photoshop on a select number of images, … sent them to the designer, designer tests the waters and sends them to the client, … and “bingo”!
It suited their color scheme perfectly for the remaining two floors.
The following image is just one of those accepted by the client.

“Adagio” Series
Black & Gold Version


Always keep a open mind while out in the field, … and when sitting in front of that computer!
Getting creatively wild with your designers/consultants can sometimes work wonders for everyone involved in a project including the paying client!
And besides, ….. they look at so many photographer’s and painter’s work, … I know that they like seeing the sometimes quirky and/or wild side of the creatives that they work with. You never know what may develop.
After establishing a good working relationship with them, let them have a bit of fun sometimes with your work, … just like you should do!

In the end, … you just may turn out to be that consultant’s or designer’s “go to guy”!

Most of the “Adagio” Series, including some of the black and gold versions, will be uploaded to the archives in the next few days.
Newer images to follow.

Everyone take care,

  1. Michael…having gone through exactly what you describe but from the opposite end, I confess it never crossed my mind to change the color scheme. This works very well.

  2. Wow, I love the strong contrast of this shot. The yellow against the black really caught my attention. Nice capture.

    Eph, I wish you the very best on that first job.
    It can be a little gut wrenching at times, … but you will pull through it all! :)
