Just playing with light.
Oh wow that is beautiful
I bet you thought I only took pictures of Eagles. Ha Fooled ya
Yep ya fooled me
But I think you took the plant with you to shoot eagles and when they were being boring shot the orchids:>))))))
Ha Ha Ha LOL
Actually I shot the orchid in my kitchen with a wooden chair, a black nylon windbreaker over the back, the flower on the seat and a flashlight from my truck.
nothing like a poor mans studio.. great job...
I used to use an old black sweater...lol
They say velvet it better though
Thats a great idea thanks i want to try it now:biggrin: very nice image also!
You got it, I'm not really a indoor shooter so I was playing on a rainy day
It would be, But if you shoot with a shallow DOF and keep a seperation between the flower and th BG it really make little difference.
If you do try it try to have normal indoor light on the front and I used a LED Flashlight at a angle on the backside to let the flower to bring the light to the front.
Love your shot. I have been trying to get mine to look like this. (with no luck) Makes me want to try again.
That's an awesome looking picture. I must get a velvet backboard....
It is not a hard shot Kim, the key is to use LED light on the back side for added light and normal light from front, No Flash!!!
The background here was a black windbreaker Far enough from the Flower and Outside DOF.
It sounds pretty simple. But i have not macro lens, i can try it with my kit lens though.
Your Kit lens will work fine.
This shot was made with a 85mm f1.8 EXIF attached to photo.
Shutter 1 sec.
Love this shot - I'm gonna have to try it. Now I just have to find a suitable flower... ;-)
Thanks Vern Good luck
Beautiful! That pure white reminds me of a commercial for a washing powder :smile: .
Is is almost a pearl color
Gary, nice shot. White orchids are reall difficult to balance because of the relective petal surfaces. You did a great job here.
Wonderful shot, I guess all it take is some creativity......you naile it. Great job - Jeff
