This is the 7th in a series of 10 images that I created for my senior project. The series is called "Butterfly Flowers". This particular flower is I believe a Golden Hat Phalaenopsis Orchid. The scales used are from the Atlas Moth Attacus atlas
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
