The Dead Sunflower

The Dead Sunflower

As I was leaving the house the dead sunflower in my front garden caught my eye. There was just something about it that really stood out to me on this particular day and I can only put it down to the way the sunlight was beaming down onto the plant and if you’re familiar with photography you’ll know that lighting really is everything when it comes to photography.

In the coloured images, I really think that the colour of the background really compliments the murky browns of the plant itself however, you know the lighting makes the image when you take the colours away from the image and it still is pleasing to look at; I’d even go as far as saying that the black and white image is actually makes for a much nicer composite and picture all together.

Photographing this got me thinking for the rest of the day about how winter is upon us and I ended up walking around my garden seeing if there were any more interesting dead plants about. It’s inspired me to potentially make this into a series.
