When I started making these images I had an idea that I wanted to shape what I could find of wild flowers into abstract shapes. Some geometric and some towards the organic. Controlling the shapes as much as possible with living flowers. I also wanted the images to add color to a home or a space. In a discreet way with a smaller print or as a statement piece with the large format print. The images are photographed with a Hasselblad, a very high quality camera. This high quality, high resolution make the images very detailed in a large print when looking close. When looking at the print farther away it is about the shape and color.
More shapes of summer art photography prints. The purple clover flower, the blue corn flower and some blackberries. There are 16 prints total in the series. To see them all welcome to visit my print shop: https://ulrikaekblomphoto.patternbyetsy.com
This is a new series of art photographs of wild flowers and berries shaped into memories of summer. Some of the last wildflowers of the summer photographed as flat lays. Shaped into rectangles, ovals and organic shapes. The colors are blue and purple set against black and rusty browns.
I’ve been playing around with my prints from the Print Shop and paired them two and two. It’s a lot of fun because it can change the feeling of the photo, it becomes something new. When pairing images you can think in colors, contrasting or in harmony with each other. You can think a theme, or a matching light. There are many ways to do it. I have small prints of all my work so I combine them in real life to see what I like. After that I combine them in photoshop. Here are a few of them all linked to the shop.
A few years ago, not that many, in the beginning of the summer I traveled to Napoli in Italy. On my third day in Napoli I and the group I traveled with went on a day trip to the Sorrento Peninsula and the tiny village of Massa Lubrense where we had lunch. The restaurant is Lo Scoglio. A family run restaurant where they grow all their own vegetables and get their fish and seafood in the ocean just outside the restaurant. The food and the surroundings I will never forget and this is what it looks like.
Autumn in Copenhagen. Beautiful sunny days and cold windy ones. All images apart from the first one is from the area in Copenhagen called Christianhavn. Copenhagen is wonderful in all kinds of weather and the first image is shot on Gothersgade. Continue reading
Almost exactly a year ago I traveled to the Greek island of Crete with a team of very talented and creative women. During a week we produced a cookbook with food cooked by the loveliest Cretan women. (More about the book in an earlier post, go here.) I shot lots and lots and many of the photos are printed in the book. I’ve looked through all images I shot again. Somehow my mind brings back strong memories of a trip a year later. Usually also only the good parts, making me want to go again. Trips are usually mostly good and so was this one. I’ve chosen some new images and edited them to reflect what my feeling of this trip is now a year later. (Some of the photos from Crete are already in my printshop, see a post about that here.)
