Reynoso Art: To the Point- Monochrome Rose

rose monochrome photo

To the Point © 2014 Pamela Reynoso

 

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.
