A Frozen Rose by Cindy Gosselin

August 2019 - A Frozen Rose

About the Image(s)

This image, although creative, is a straight out of camera shot. This rose was frozen overnight in distilled water in a 3-4” deep container. I believe the “bubbles” were created by the emission of carbon dioxide as the “fresh” rose slowly froze. Once frozen, I removed it from its container and positioned it for the composition I wanted. I then lit it from both behind and from the sides with flashes to bring out the details in both the rose and the frozen surroundings.

Very creative and interesting.
I think it's probably worthwhile for you to experiment with addditional creative variations.   Posted: 08/03/2019 16:53:38

The bubbles really make it don't they? Fabulous effect in the centre though I would tend to cut away a little more of the milky outside. Trouble is that you want to keep it off-centre. Fascinating. Try some more.....   Posted: 08/21/2019 15:18:36

Great idea with the rose...Have never tried to do this, but think I will now that I see how effectively the end result is....good detail in the bubbles and petals...   Posted: 08/23/2019 16:52:27
