Jason McGroarty is a self-taught and very talented photographer. He first began taking photos of things in his everyday life. Shortly after that, he developed a keen interest in floral photography. But he wasn’t so interested in the average garden flowers you might see in their natural place. He wanted to focus on a totally different and somewhat unexpected element of the garden flowers.
“I removed the most distracting element – the color.”
It may seem counterintuitive to take black and white photos of flowers to create this cool black and white flowers gallery, but it really does make sense. There is so much more to a flower than it’s color. The shape and symmetry are much more profound than the color.
Take a look at some of these black and white flowers photos taken by Jason and you’ll see what I mean. Once you take away the color, the other elements of beauty are much easier to notice. Let us know what you think of Jason’s work in the comments section. More info: Website
