Description
I grew butternut squash from seed in the garden and was fascinated by the size of the blossoms. They are much more delicate than zucchini blossoms and have such a subtle color to them. They come and go quickly so I made sure to photograph this blossom in the early morning when it had just opened up. I chose color film because it does a great job of rendering the colors true to life and gives the subject a very warm and inviting feel. After having the film developed, I wet scanned the film negative and prepared the file for printing.
Try it!
