I created this body of work by drawing inspiration from some of my favorite artists that I’ve discovered through Instagram: Aimee Beaubien, Marina Bronevich, and Tine Poppe. I was mainly interested in their use of bright, vibrant color as that is something that I had never previously attempted in my own work, as well as their use of plants as subject matter. I created a floral arrangement and shot the scene in its entirety. Then, I used a macro lens and a variety of colored gels to focus on specific areas of the arrangement. Using Photoshop, I blended the original photo with nine separate macro shots to create a series of whimsical images.
