[Wax-like Flowers] *UGH*

  1. I just can't get my head around these flowers,
    they are of a wax-like nature and highly reflective.
    They keep foolin' me when shootin' em. *UGH*

    Pick o the bunch here.
    Comments may flow freely if so inclined :D

    At least their stalks are quite photogenic - Ah well, 1 outta 5 is a good day I guess.

  2. That sort of flower surface texture has given me fits too. There are many flowers I just don't shoot anymore because I never found the right light for them. Orchids, some lillies, etc.

    I think the light just needs to be a diffuse as possible.

    Nice images nonetheless.
