In today’s photography workshop, we’ve been working with flower heads, captured in trays of Ice.  We photographed the Ice over time , with close up shots and as the ice changed, the subject matter changed too.

The green coloured cloth was set out to keep the table dry – but it added some interesting textures to the photograph.

The Ice allowed us to do some really good close up work, and as it melted – we achieved some really good effects with our cameras.

Getting close up to the subject matter in the ice captured the bubbles in the ice as well as the details in the flowers.  I enjoyed taking the above pic because of the colours in the flower, the detail of the flower and the bubbles in the ice.

  1. Wow these are really interesting! I have never heard of freezing flowers. Only freezing credit cards haha. Have you ever tried putting flowers in between heavy books for a few days? It dries them out and they look gorgeous.

    1. I’ve done that also, One More Shot – but since getting hold of my camera – I’ve tended to point and shoot to capture the images. Our Leaders experiment was really good though might try it myself – if I can get a baking tray past the ready meals (sic)
