16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Between photography and painting

When I take a photo of the flowers I try to touch this delicacy and elusive, which in my opinion defines the essence of this subtle plant. I’m looking for the right frame. I’m looking for the appropriate light, because photography is painting with light. And in the post-production process, I’m looking for a suitable color that symbolizes the moment that passes. These attempts never reach the ideal, but every time I try to approach him. Every flower and every photo is starting this sample from the beginning.
