Withered Colors

The idea of dried flowers came when photographing fresh ones became a little too mundane. The lengthy process of drying flowers added individuality as each went through a major transformation of texture and color. Before the petals dried up completely, they were delicately angled to render more dimension. Some would prove too difficult to remain intact through the drying process, while other would lose color and turn dull. Shallow depth of field is used in the images here together with the interplay of color and sunlight.
