When I was making the Roses poster, it took a lot of tests to arrive at the right flowers and the right shot. I tried pre-dried plants, exotic flowers, common flowers, having them in a vase, holding them, laying them down on different surfaces, figuring out what levels of wilted-ness looked best etc. In the end, I decided that roses were what I was looking for. I really liked how the other shots turned out but didn't think they were right for the posters. Here are some outtakes that I thought were pretty.
