I was out the for a walk a few days ago and found this stalk of dried flowers that I thought might make for an interesting study. Tonight I took these dead flowers and placed them in front of my soft box and began experimenting with a variety of techniques both with my Canon 7D and my iPhone. I finally settled on this image from the iPhone using the Hipstamatic app with Americana Lens and Kodot XGrizzled film. I then brought the file in to Snapseed where I converted it to B&W and tuned it. I loved the way it gave beauty and elegance to a life once lived.
