Some flowers, I feel, make more interesting portraits than others.
Some flowers refuse to show there inner most selves, until they wilt and drop their protective petals.
Tulips, however, have nothing to hide.
They reveal their inner beauty as soon as they blossom and proudly show off their glorious colours.
Below, on my window sill, waiting their turn in the limelight ....
A quick try out with full light from the window ......
The studio set up, a painted canvas and water bottle ......
The resulting head shots were all edited with Kim Klassen's Moody and Magic Presets for Lightroom.
Three different edits of the same flower .....
Other variations .....
And the infamous Semper Augustus look alike, the most expensive bulb ever during the 17th century Tulip Mania speculation bubble, in Europe.

Welcome to my blog:
My French Country Life.
I'm British born, but moved to France decades ago for love.
My blog is about my photography and my life in the French countryside, near Paris.
I create images that are greatly influenced by art, both past and present, that you can buy in the shop.
I'm happy to discuss comissions.
