Yesterday I read an article about photographing frozen flowers
and this has been something I wanted to try for a very long while 🙂
So I went to the flower market and I got some flowers – I didn’t use all of them, most are on my balcony and I am looking after them.
They had to be tiny flowers so they can fit in my ice-cube tray. I knew that any bigger blocks of ice will take forever to freeze cos my freezer is not that powerful.
I carefully selected the flowers that I like best and then arranged them
in the tray 🙂
They were in the freezer by half 11 in the morning so in the afternoon around 6 pm I was very excited to check on them and see how they are doing.
They looked exactly the same – not frozen at all 🙁 So left them overnight…
I went to bed still full of ideas and started thinking about the background… I wanted something in black and white with a clear division between the two… Luckily I had furniture that worked great for that 🙂
This morning I took the photos and I had to do it fast cos the ice cubes were melting quickly 🙂
Four of the photos turned out good enough to share on my website.
You can see them in the slideshow bellow – starting with my favorite one : )
