This is the 6th in a series of 10 images that I created for my senior project. The series is called "Butterfly Flowers". This particular flower is Stargazer The butterfly scales used are from the Emerald Swallowtail Papilio palinurus
which is native to South East Asia.Detail ImageThe Process:
Flowers taken in my studio with my 40D+100mm macro and strobe lighting with a black fabric background.
The RAW files are adjusted and converted to jpg.
The butterflies were taken in RAW as well at the Butterfly House in Whitehouse Ohio with the 300D+100 mm macro and 500D filter
The flowers and butterflies are then combined in Photoshop.
The final images will be printed on dA canvas with "Butterfly I" as a 16 by 20 and the rest as 11 by 14.Butterfly Flower IButterfly Flower IIButterfly Flower IIIButterfly Flower IVButterfly Flower VButterfly Flower VIButterfly Flower VIIButterfly Flower VIIIButterfly Flower IXButterfly Flower X
