Dark and Detailed – Flower Photography by Valentina
Valentina is an Italian photographer with an eye for beauty and detail. Her close-up botanical photos show the complexity and color nuances of each petal, pistil and stamen of a flower. Using a background of pure black gives a serious tone to the otherwise lighthearted subject of flowers. It also concentrates attention on a limited area and emphasizes the dramatic curves inherent in flowers. Such a focused view reveals how a simple flower is bolder and more complicated than even the most fantastic ballroom dress.
