3 Roses by Peter Zentjens

It’s been a while since I posted any new still life work and I thought it was about time to pick it up again.

This is a first though. I’m uploading something of which I’m not 100% convinced that this is the end product. The reason is, I have this image in my head of 3 roses that just won’t come out. Although I like this one, or I wouldn’t be uploading it, it’s not entirely impossible that that images will keep on nagging me resulting in another take. Weird, because I already, partly, wrote a tutorial based on this which I’ll have to hold back until the whole process is complete and either I have shot a second version or decided that this is as close as I can get to my mental image. Like I said, a first do be doing a series on the exact same subject.

About this work: part of my Nostalgia series and shot using my painting with light technique but with some extra post processing. I use my Pentax K10D and my loyal old Pentax-A 1:1.7 50mm objective.

Best viewed large to see the intricate detail of the roses.
