When we look at a flower, the first thing that comes in our mind is beautiful. Flowers are beautiful and very pleasing to our eyes but our featured artist for today, Melissa Pelkey, a fine art photographer from USA didn't capture the flowers just because they are pretty but because they are always changing while hanging on to their delicate beauty. Let us see the beauty of these flowers and may this inspire you to your next photography project. Read on and enjoy!

For my series, Little White Flower, my camera was a Nikon D3000, and a Nikon Micro-Nikkor 55mm lens. I also use the Sirui P-204S Monopod for more stability. I used Adobe Photoshop including Camera Raw as well.

I like to shoot flowers not just because they are pretty, but because they are always changing while hanging on to their delicate beauty. The flower in the series Little White Flower is that of a Spider Plant - Chlorophytum Comosum. The spider plant needs to experience seasonal light cycles in order to flower. The flowers only last a day, so most people don’t even notice them or their beauty.

I captured some of the flower’s beauty. When I am shooting, I tend to take lots of images. I take different angles and different Shutter Speeds and F-Stops. I then go through and pick the ones I really like to become the series.

  1. Very captivating images the photographer captured here. Varying the angles, shutter and Fstops is a great way to "create" a new image from the same subject.

  2. This is wallpaper material now. Me too being a macro photography enthusiast could really appreciate the amount of work you have put in these awesome clicks. Exotic bokeh, very fine editing and right choice of gear and subject makes the photographs in the Little White Flower series a treat to viewers eyes. Well done Melissa Pelkey.
