Last weekend, my son and I found some sunflowers at Trader Joe’s. They looked so droopy I didn’t hold out much hope for them. But we bought them anyway, and were amazed at how much they bloomed once we got them in water.
This photograph is just one of the first studies I’ve done. My hope is to create a photograph that feels like a sunflower, not just looks like one. My challenge with these flowers has been their intense yellow/orange color. It is so bright and saturated, it blows away my camera sensor, making it extremely hard to capture.
