NIKON D7200, 105MM, 1/250S, F/7, ISO 100 Marina has always been fond of the old masters, but she found that painting wasn’t her calling. Discovering the joys of photography four years ago, she replicates in her photographs some of the qualities she enjoys in paintings. While this particular flower lacks the clean lines of your picture-postcard tulip, Marina told us that she strives to find something unique about her subjects. She isn’t somebody who is drawn to taking portraits of people, and this focus on imperfections and differences works to imbue her subjects with personality and an individualism not always present in your standard flower snap.
