Thanks for the C&Cs on the Aster.
Staying with flowers tonight, this was shot in a light cube and experimenting with different backgrounds I found this greeny yellow worked well.
The background colour does compliment the yellow rose, wonderful detailed capture.
A beautiful rose and a stunning capture
A beautiful yellow rose which you have photographed and presented so superbly
Brilliant capture and presentation !
Happy New Year !
For some reasson, this reminds me of a Victorian lady's frilly knickers - not that I would be an expert
I have attempted to photograph glass & crystal in a light cube, for my firm & found that the light was stronger in some areas, resulting in blown out areas (glass is highly reflective). I can see some areas in your beautiful Rose where the saturation had degraded; a result of the lighting inside the cube. We tried to difuse the light, using pieces of net curtain - it was not entirely successful for glass, but may work for flowers?
You are right about the background, Keith. It suits this Rose and stem perfectly
Beautiful ! I love the colour !!
Thanks for your observation Simon. The RAW file has captured all the detail. In this case I was using a spedlight with no diffuser, positioned outside the cube. I was trying out my new radio trigger and had this subject to hand.
On other occasions I've used a softbox on a flash so that the light gets double diffused and that does give softer light. It's even better with two flashes for more even lighting but I do like some directionality for most subjects.
A beauty Keith, gorgeous rose and background
