I started this project a couple of months ago to document my wife’s passion for flowers and plants. Our small flat is just full of them. They are of different shapes and sizes. Some are very odd, some are in very odd pots, but all of them are beautiful.
For the project I have chosen Polaroid Originals SX-70 B&W film, mainly because I didn’t want to be disturbed by color. All of the photos has been taken by Mint SLR 670m, a very amazing camera which allowed me to nail the exposure in every single shot. In some of these photos I used continuous light sources to help me with contrast, and I don’t think I would get the same results using automatic metering of the camera. All of the pictures has been taken in our apartment, mostly against white background (usually wall).
We are going to move into even smaller flat in the near future, so this document now got additional meaning to us, because some of the plants will have to go to some new home soon.
