Photography can be very challenging. It’s not dependent on a good quality camera, but the observation skills and ideas and concept of the photographer matter a lot. Furthermore, there are many things a photographer has to take into account, for instance, light shades; the background of the subject should be dim, dull or obvious etc, the softness and sharpness factor, camera position, effects of artificial lighting and natural lighting, etc.
Creativity is something which either you have or you don’t have. Malina K is a skillfully creative Photographer from Athens, Greece. The noteworthy feature of her gallery is the photos of different flowers. Unlike the portrait photographers, who have to have good communication skills so as to make their subject relax and comfortable, a nature photographers have to have a lot of patience in order to get the best shot. The way she has photographed the real flowers has no comparison! Her detailed portfolio could be seen on deviantART.
She knows how to skillfully highlight the subject while keeping the rest of the nature around artistically dim. This technique she has used in several of her photos. For instance “Lazy days”, “Burned”, “Closer”, “Us” and “Portrait of a Poppy” etc. What I have noticed is that she has mostly emphasized the red flowers (especially poppy and rose) using this style. In this category, my favorite is “Us”. The two red poppy flowers with the rest of the things in gray. This contrast immediately catches your attention. It’s very intriguing and has accentuated the flowers.
“Summer Rain” is another beautiful photo she took. She has captured the freshness of summer rain in this picture. With rain drops on the flower’s wide open petals fill up senses. The picture is clear and is sharp enough that one can see the different shades in the petals. It’s undoubtedly one of the mind blowing pieces!
My personal favorite is her “Day Dream”. It’s a photo of a fresh pink tightly rolled up rose (bud) with rain drops over it. The background colors are beautifully blended well enough to make the bud noticeable.
