At the Purest Heart of Everything ...
The last of the series of images created for the "Vivid Art" group's "Vivic Spring Blossoms" Challenge.
There is a magnolia tree in Toronto's "Cabbagetown" neighbourhood that is as tall as the house it sits in front of. It's not only huge, it's a very healthy, robust tree. It has so many blossoms on it every year that some of it's branches bend down under the weight of them.
This shot was taken from underneath one of the over-hanging branches that reaches out over the sidewalk. I stood behind the blossoms and shot them backlit, a way that seems to bring them to their fullest expression. Magnolia blossoms seen to be made to be both rich, velvety and opaque and as translucent and illuminated.
It's been great revisiting old SOOC images and giving them a new and different slant with colour and effects processing. It's made me think of dusting off my digital SLR and shooting with that again. Not as a replacement of my "Pano-Sabotage", iPhone technique, but as a way to keep my work broad by using both.
