Black and White Flower Photography

Black and white flower photography demands a different kind of approach and attention than colored photographs.  These pale hosta flowers are compelling in black and white. The contrast between the sharp flower detail and the muted suggestion of leave behind gives a sense of softness and depth.  Black and white photography seems to stimulate the intellect first, and the senses second.  My black and white floral series are edited separately from colored floral pictures.  They are two different ways of seeing.
