I have been working on a new Series which has been shared on my Social Media Channels and the Nature Collection in the Gallery. The new Series, entitled, “Mum” highlights beautiful Jumbo Mum flowers I recently spotted during a typical trip to the grocery store.
In hopes of adding more Color to my Collection, while staying within the Style of my work, these flowers were captured in Studio against a black backdrop. I also tested shots against a white backdrop. As I continue to Edit the Photography, a few of those may end up in the Series, as well.
Normally, I number the Series according to which shots I captured first. However, this Set is numbered by which pieces were finished, first. For example, Mum, No.3 is one of the first shots I captured, yet, it’s No.3 in the Series.
I am not sure how many images will be included in the Mum Series. I do know that I have at least two more potential pieces that may be added. For now, four pieces are finished. As a bonus, these photographs can be purchased larger than the 24-inch by 36-inch maximum Dimension size that I regularly offer. This Series is available at various Sizes starting at 8-inch by 12-inch up to 36-inch by 54-inch.
In the past, I have tried to rush out new work in my excitement to show others. This Series is being Edited more methodically. I need to take my time while Editing each potential addition and re-shoot (if possibly) certain pieces that don’t quite meet my standards.
The group of flowers I purchased have faded quickly. I will need to purchase more Jumbo Mums to continue adding to this Series beyond the shots I already have. I’m not sure if I will. My next purchase of flowers will probably be a different type of flower altogether. Time will tell.
You may purchase these Prints on Fine Art Paper in the “Nature” Section of the Gallery (byecj.com). I hope you like the new work. There’s more to come.
