Blooming Art is a series of floral paraphrases that floral artist, Petra Radnai, made, and I photographed.
Every single picture that we choose to imitate we observed in many different ways. Petra reflected on the style of the original paintings during her work. She was using a different type of compositions to bring additional meaning to each piece. She also chose the type of flowers based on the personality of the characters she was imitating.
I had three focuses during the process: backgrounds, lighting, and postproduction. The goal was to create a context for each piece with painted backgrounds. I was lighting each floral composition to resemble these paintings. Finally, I edited the brightness, colors, and texture of the photographs in the most identical way possible comparing to original paintings.
