Reynoso Art: To the Point- Monochrome Rose

This photo came out of a several day project where I took probably 1,000 photos of roses. I was experimenting with light, shape, shadow and lines. In other words, all the basics. :) I converted this photo of a red rose to a silvery monochrome because I felt doing so would further accentuate its simplicity and highlight the subject – the clearly defined point of the rose’s petal. My favorite photos are no frills, stripped down images where the subject speaks clearly on its own.

It is said that the art of photography can be distilled down to what the photographer excludes from the frame. Life is messy, but art, my art, need not be. I like it that way.

  • Awesome! Almost looks like one of those electron microscope images.

    • Thank you, Jim! Have you seen infrared photography? It almost reminds me of that, now that you have me thinking. :)

      • Yeah it does kinda look like that, too. I never had a chance to use any when I had a film camera. I’ve seen some infrared photos, pretty neat stuff!
