BS17 Vincent's Dreams

BS17 Vincent's Dreams

this is easily one of my personal favorites of all my images...
i wanted the sunflower in the foreground to be in clean focus as my subject, along with the stars and milky way as my background, yet i wanted to blur the middle ground of the image (lens blur using large aperture) to make the sunflower stand out, and sort of float like in a dream with the stars behind...
with this being images of semi-long exposure times, a stable and sturdy tripod was an absolute necessity for this composition in order to keep both images sharp in the places i wanted sharpness.

in my photography i always use filters to create long exposure effects and to balance the light in my composition in camera...i often use as many as four filters at time, and i always use at least one filter, as is the case with this image where i only needed to use one filter...for this, i chose to use the .6gnd progrey genesis filter to help balance in-camera overall the image the way i envisioned it, as well as create a natural vignette around the top of the sunflower...

this impression of mine is totally inspired by vincent, not just his paintings of sunflowers and of stars, but also the artist behind the work as well, his story, so inspiring even though it is both joyful and sad at times, i can relate to his thoughts, writings, his expressions in his paintings, and how he felt and lived...i can relate to all of it and truly know how he felt, i can empathize as there are so many similarities to my life and his...i have always felt such a deep empathy for vincent...i am very much able to relate to everything i have come to understand about him, and his work will always be a huge influence on my photography...
