Artist's description:

Every spring time a cluster of four double headed white lion daffodils appear in my garden. Most of the time they either don't form properly or quickly get damaged by the weather. Last year after five years of waiting I finally managed to grow one that I felt was truly worth photographing. My aim was to capture the true beauty of each individual flower, isolated from any distractions. I have chosen the colour palette to reflect the colours of nature and paired the flower with a plain grey background to complement the flower. In post processing I placed a textured layer on the image to create extra interest and to draw the viewer towards the flower. These are still life flower portraits and I have aimed to capture the essence of my subject through lighting and composition. Unlike the actual flower which fades and dies, this photograph has immortalised it in print. This large flower image will be printed on fabric in razor-sharp quality and with brilliant colours and with its subtly textured surface; it transforms any photo into a unique gallery work that is full of life. During the thermal sublimation process, the colours are completely evaporated into the material. The resolution of up to 720 dpi and the enlarged CMYK colour spectrum allows accurate colour reproduction with clear contours. We only use textiles that are free of harmful substances and that have been awarded the internationally recognised Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. Your image is mounted on the solid wood stretcher frame in its true form using only, high quality stretcher frames made of solid wood. The spruce wood comes from German suppliers and is sourced from sustainable forests. To give the stretcher frames permanent protection from losing shape, we triple reinforce the corners under the textile print using metal braces. When mounting on the stretcher frame we avoid using wedges – the frame is so stable that you won't need to loosen or tighten it at a later stage and it will arrive ready to hang.

Materials used:

Tripod mounted digital SLR camera with a 90mm macro lens. studio flash; key light barn doors with diffuser; fill light shoot through translucent brolly on background; white reflector. Processed in Lightroom 5 & Photoshop CS6. Texture added in CS6.
