Persian buttercups (Ranunculus asiaticus) is a perennial plant that can grow to be a foot and a half tall. They have blooms that resemble roses, with simple or branched stems.
The basal leaves are three-lobed, with leaves higher on the stems more deeply divided; like the stems, they are downy or hairy.
The petals are often highly lustrous, especially in yellow species.
Some species are popular ornamental flowers in horticulture, with many cultivars selected for large and brightly coloured flowers.
What got me 'in' to 'flower-photography', was that I wanted to know more about lighting... That was 23 years ago, flowers seemed the perfect subject matter, because of their different colours, shapes, textures, great variety and 'characters', I'd had many a garden, grown my own, so, I started out with an advantage, I knew about flowers... I found a niche in the market, for almost 10 years now people have been 'raving' about them, asking me how I 'do' it? There is NO magic formula, each flower is unique and treated as such! I do NOT consider myself a 'flower-photographer' but a a photographer who knows how to use lighting well...
Glad you enjoy them.
