Description This picture won an award from a popular British photograph magazine. The two red and orange Gerbera daisies were photographed with a macro lens. The flowers were lit by indoor light with a very soft diffuser. Exposure time was increased considerably to capture its real colors and contrast naturally. This image was taken at a unique and abstract perspective. It was set up to create an impression of fire emerging from total darkness. >>>For printed merchandises with my image(s), such as T-shirts, caps, mouse pads, calendars, mugs, and more, please come visit my online store at http://www.cafepress.com/infomages
Sam Lee, Massachusetts Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement For many years, I have been a freelance photographer creating stock imagery (both still and moving images) and fine art digital visual content. I provide relevant imagery to creative professionals at advertising agencies, graphic design firms, corporations, and film and broadcasting companies; editorial customers involved in newspaper, magazine, book, compact disc (CD) and online publishing, and corporate marketing departments and other business customers. Currently, I offer my imagery through web sites of the top global online visual content distributing agencies, including Getty Images.
I love nature’s beauty, especially flowers: I enjoy observing their amazing designs and details. I can study them over and over again without being bored. In fact, flowers communicate to human beings in their very special ways. They give us a glimpse of the adorable nature of our universe; they bring faith, hope, love and creativity to our life. They comfort in difficult times and often heal our souls.
My passion is to use photography to capture my personal moments with flowers. There is more to a flower's beauty than just colors, shapes and texture; there is personality in them. No two flowers on earth are exactly the same. If you look at them closely, you may be able to see that each single flower presents itself a little differently. Flowers will not last too long, their glories are short. Using photography, a personal relationship is formed and extended to the distant future. These moments will go on.
Please join me in celebration of these precious moments. My latest work involves Gerbera Daisy, Tulip, Rose, Lotus, Regal Lily and Cyclamen. Some of my work showing here have won first and top prices from public photography competitions with thousands contestants.
