Art or Iris?
A close-up of yesterday's Flag Iris.
All the photo-advice books say that in flower photography you MUST start with a perfect bloom. This is a perfect wild flag iris, yet this is an artless image compared to, say,http://www.pixelpixie.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Poppy_Abstracts_%A3!;hash%A3!;2/
which wasn't a perfect bloom, but was certainly a lovely piece of Art.
Getting Art into flower photography, as opposed to perhaps an accurate, pretty, informative but artless record of what a plant looks like, is a difficult thing, which I have been singularly unsuccessful at!
What do you prefer- art or accuracy?!
