Bulbs In Bloom

There is simply no comparable title focusing on the photogenic beauty of bulbs. Flower lovers and photography buffs alike will marvel at the lush and truly framable artwork of acclaimed photographer Peter Arnold. Includes information on bulb selection, planting, and care tips. Peter Arnold trained with the Japanese photographer Hideoki, and in London with beauty photographer Barry Lategan before working freelance in Australia. Returning to London, where he specialized in beauty and nature photography, he developed an interest in early botanical prints that led to his flower photography. His work has been exhibited both by Ilford and Kodak. Bulbs in Bloom is the stunning follow-up to his beautiful Tulips.

This is a beautiful, artfully done book. I saw it for the first time just after viewing the Georgia O'Keefe art show in San Francisco. I was inspired by the show to look at flowers in books, and when I leafed through this book, I found the photographs as beautiful as the art work I had just enjoyed. The photos are works of art, very close up and extremely well choreographed. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a gorgeous collection of photos of beautiful bulbs in bloom!

Wow! I bought this book for my Mom for mother's day. The photos are hyper close-ups and so beautiful. It's a great coffee table book, and has the added benefit of a succinct section on chosing the right bulbs, planting storing, and using bulbs in container gardens. Very clever, very pretty.

I was searching for a gift for my sister, who is a bulb and gardening master. After taking a closer look at the gorgeous photos and great practical advice, I bought a copy for myself as well! If you love flowers, you'll love this book.

The flowers are just beautiful. I bought this book to use as reference photos for drawing/painting. It's better than I anticipated.

Hi,I'm a serious amatuer photographer and had heard a lot about this book. This is not a "how-to" book. I knew that going in. All the photographs have a black background or a white background. They are all approximately square. The author says he does this so we focus on the photos and not the background. After a few pages I got bored of the white and black backgrounds. If you read Shaw's books he'll tell you that black backgrounds in particular are very un-natural looking. In our world with a Sun a black background seldom occurs. Some of the white background shots look like a cheap Photoshop knockout. Although the author claims he uses only a lighted white backdrop to produce the effect. All in all, just not as moving as many have described it. You'd be much, much better off buying Shaw's book "Close-ups in Nature". I ended up sending mine back.
