The Maine Flower Show will be held at Thompson's Point this year. The show "is one of the biggest gardening and horticultural shows in the region where landscapers, exhibitors, designers and horticulturists come together in one anticipated event. This year attendees aren't just observers - they will immerse in colors, smells, and sounds of the great state of Maine and experience its natural beauty firsthand."
Our theme is to try and capture a "smell" or "sound" of any flower or plant you pick out. What we are looking for is an image that can capture not only the beauty of the botanical but also an impression of its scent or sound.
The light, the shadows, the surrounding environment will contribute to this.
Any lens will do. This exercise is not just meant for close-ups. Large formats are welcome.
For more information you can look up "scent-o-graphy" to get an idea. Scent-o-graphy is scientific but it might spark some thoughts.
