Ok, I promise to not focus on flowers exclusively. For one, they are so blown out in the photography world… face it, it is VERY hard to make a living off of flower images (although I haven’t found out what you CAN photograph to make a living off of yet… someday, maybe…)! But they are fun and a good exploration for lighting, which is what I’m using them for here. I lit this from below and camera left, and then played extensively in Photoshop (there was a conversion to black and white, then use of an infrared filter, then some masking in to recover some of the color). Overall a very fun and beautiful (and hopefully, unique) image!
