Behind The Scenes
Photograph - Fine Art Photograph
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Often times, we "behold" obvious beauty and neglect to look further. I try to see beyond the obvious and look at subjects from different angles. I can spend a lot of time photographing a small flower like this - shooting above it, below it, one side or the other, and in this case, behind it - just trying to catch just the right angle.
Out of half a dozen or so images of this particular bloom, the shot from behind turned out to be the most appealing to me. From behind, the sunlight falling on the front of the flower gives it an iridescent quality from the back. From this angle you also pick up the very fine strands of spider web that would go unnoticed from the front.
