As a reference to what's possible, see Chris Calohan's "Dark Wonder"! Works like that certainly make me want to get the very most out of the presentation options available. It's easier with a dark flower where lighting a part can be dramatic. With white flowers, it's possible too, but somewhat harder!

Asher!
That you both for your comments :-)

I love how minimalist the flower has come out, it's like flower light. But I find the vase pulls my eye away from the flower as it is so much darker than the flower. Just my thoughts great image!

Monotoned gazania - the product of fiddling with the settings on my camera. Sometimes exploring options creates unexpected results.

Asher Kelman: Fresh Magnolia

Los Angeles 2015

Leica M Summilux 50mm 1.4 Sony A7R


From the tree in a neighbors garden. I had to take out the shed pollen in the lower petals Maybe some is supposed to be transported by the wind?
