"This is a series inspired by a weekly challenge - recently set by the Hipsta365 Facebook group - to use the Salvador 84 lens. It’s not a lens I’ve used much at all, but I had fun getting to know it with these images. If I’m not taking photos of my children, then I’m probably taking photos of flowers. I like single stems in particular - they’re beautifully fragile yet radiate strength. I like to isolate them by placing them on a plain background, usually keeping the final image quite minimal in style. But I decided to play around a little more with some of my floral images here, using Salvador 84 and different films. I love how the lens seems to make the flowers dance with themselves."
