Liz and I had a blast together with this shoot. We played for hours with all the props and design elements (personally, I enjoyed stacking rocks!). While the amount of flowers I used was minimal...that is kind of the point with a zen setting! My favorite idea was using Japanese Maple leaves to create a lotus bloom. We used this on a napkin for the shot, but it looked pretty cool floating in a bowl of water too.
Hanging in Liz's studio is a perfect way for me think outside the parameters of traditional design. I'm already anxious for our next design adventure!
