A series depicting flowers up close and personal. Details exposed and colors bursting in the eyes of the viewers.
Flowers catch the eye of many from a distance, but few take the opportunity to get a closer look. Examining their features, their textures, and following every curve of each petal is mesmerizing. Colors burst forth and consume the viewer in a rush of details and emotions.

Using natural lighting I follow my inspiration to find the angles and scenes that best depict and compliment nature in it's finest. My photgraphy potrays the sense of beauty and perfection that cannot be manmade or recreated.
